One Hour Self-guided Audio Tour of the Green Line by VoiceMap

One Hour Self-guided Audio Tour of the Green Line by VoiceMap

This tour follows an itinerary that for 15 years, while the civil war raged in Lebanon, was impossible to do. For 15 years, Beirut was a divided city. One half was Christian and the other was Muslim. There were few crossings between the two sides and many were under the control of snipers. This walk resurrects the story of the war and the areas most affected by it in Beirut. Beirut is over 5000 years old so anywhere you dig, you will find something historically significant. Along this route you will get an idea of what the city was like a hundred years ago while seeing the damage caused by the civil war. You will also get to know some historical and not so historical landmarks, such as Martyr's Square, the Egg, Beit Beirut and Falafel Sahyoun. The tour is ready whenever you are and the audio plays automatically at exactly the right time and place using your smartphone's GPS and the VoiceMap mobile app, which also works offline.
