How many died in this area during the Lebanese civil war. I wish the city planners would make the effort to do something in this area of Beirut

It was inaccessible except from a distance. Good luck trying to get across 5 lanes of traffic without a cross walk or traffic light to help you access it. The statue was almost blocked from view by piles of dirt for the construction of mew luxury housing in the area. You can not walk this section of the city and... More

So much history for a little square. Wether you're interested in the 20th century history or the 21st century, this is a must see. Take few minutes to walk around the statue and then choose the side that speaks the most to you, sit and just look at it. The statue convey the raw emotions of the terror of wars.... More

If you are at the MohammedAl-Amin Mosque take the short walk to Place des Martyrs. The statue is visible from the mosque steps. There is currently a lot of construction in the area but you can easily access the statue grounds

The whole areas around the Place des Martyrs has been undergoing last scale construction/renovations for a while so not so impressive. Worth a look if you are swinging by either the Beirut Souks or Gemmayzeh street

A historic place in beirut deviding the city into Christian and Muslim areas... has a statue in the middle and that's it. It is however close to downtown Beirut where you can find plenty of things to do.

You can see the martyre statue while walking on the street...so you don't need to book a trip to see it; it won't cost you a dime believe me because it's mainly the statue that you need to see...it was made to honour the martyre who gave their soul for the country's liberation...

If you're passing by the large mosque, then by all means visit this statue. But not reallly worth a special visit.
