The newly built Maronite Parish Hall is nested in the heart of the town of Baabdath. Conceived with the latest acoustic techniques, it can host up to 500 guests all seated comfortably on individual seats. Thanks to the Baabdath Maronite Parish, the hall is home for les Musicales de Baabdath during the concerts period.
Baabdath is located up the hills of Metn District in Mount Lebanon at an average altitude of 950 meters above sea level, and is 22 KM away from Beirut. It is accessible via several roads mainly the Metn Express Highway (23-minute drive from Beirut Central District). This fast route makes access to the concerts hassle free, particularly in autumn when the traffic is light and the weather pleasant.
To reach the Maronite Parish Hall located on the intersection of Street 20 and 21 (21 -B), signs leading to the church and marked ‘Maronite Paris Hall’ as well as ‘Les Musicales de Baabdath’ are posted on the way to the venue.
