Tannourine

Tannourine (Arabic: تنورين‎, likewise Tannoureen, Tannorine) is one of the fundamental Lebanese towns situated in the Batroun District, part of the Mohafazah (Governorate) of North-Lebanon, 75 km from the capital Beirut. Tannourine is shaped by a gathering of towns situated in the highs of the Batroun District, the biggest of which is Tannourine El-Fawqa, trailed by Tannourine El-Tahta, Chatine and Wata Houb (وطى حوب), and some more. Tannourine has a populace of around 16,000.

Tannourine reaches out from the fringes of Douma to the outskirts of Yammoune, and from the outskirts of Aqoura to the outskirts of Bsharri and Hadath El Jebbeh. Additionally it’s arranged between the Saint valley and the valley of the Ibrahim waterway (وادي القديسين ووادي نهر إبراهيم), and among Afqa and the Cedars of God.

Tannourine’s name comes from the town’s topography, which looks like the raised type of a broiler called the tannoor. The “ine” is presumably in relation to the presence of two regions of Tannourine Al-Tahta and Tannourine Al-Fawqa (the Lower Tannourine and the upper Tannourine territories).

The town is known for her climbing exercises that have been created in participation with Will Nazarian whose beginnings are Lebanese.

From here moved the Lebanese legislator to Colombia José Antonio Turbay Jorge as a result of the Ottoman Empire and being a second-level cousin of the previous leader of Colombia Julio César Turbay.
