Gibran Khalil Gibran Museum, Becharreh.

Born in the town of Bsharri in the north of modern-day Lebanon as a young man he immigrated with his family to the United States, where he studied art and began his literary career, writing in both English and Arabic. In the Arab world, Gibran is regarded as a literary and political rebel.His romantic style was at the heart of a renaissance in modern Arabic literature

In 1932, the content of Gibran’s studio in New York, including his furniture, his personal belongings, his private library, his manuscripts and 440 original paintings, was transferred to his native town Becharreh. Today, these items form the content of the Gibran museum.
