Martyrs' Square

Overlooking the waters of the Mediterranean, the Martyrs’ Square is one of the most significant landmarks of Beirut. Located in the city center, it was named after the watchtower of Burj Al Kashef. Renamed after French and Russian canons were placed, it was established as the Martyrs’ Square in 1931 as a tribute to the Lebanese nationals who were martyred during the Ottoman rule. The Martyrs’ Monument from 1965 is the work of Italian sculptor Marino Mazzacurati and acts as the centerpiece of the square. Bustling with restaurants and cinema halls, the square is being revamped into becoming one of the trendiest places in the city.
