Brief Description:
Batroumine or "Bayt Roumine" means the house of the Nobles in Syriac language, or the Roman Base. "Roumine" was a Roman princess who lived in this village more than 1500 years ago. Batroumine, located 80 km from Beirut and 330 meters above sea level, is a small village located in north Lebanon over the Koura district. The village is known for olives, oil, soap, grapes, wine, arak (Ouzo), figs and blueberries production. It has a long history which is seen through the fine examples of traditional Lebanese houses located in the village centre. Observation of the preserved architecture shows that the village has roots in the Byzantine period; such roots are strongly noted in the architecture of the churches.
