Al-Jamiza is a residential and commercial area in Beirut, the Lebanese capital. It consists of four real estate areas bordered by the areas of Al-Marfa, Al-Saifi, Ramil and Al-Madour.
Historically, it is one of the first suburbs of Beirut to be formed around the old city wall. Beirut was the focal point between the cities of Tripoli and Sidon and the Syrian interior known as The Levant. Al-Jamiza Street, which runs through the area, is one of the oldest and longest streets in Lebanon when it was built. In the neighborhood are many archaeological buildings and evidence of the periods that the country has gone through, such as the remains of Ottoman, Mamluk and Crusader Beirut. Currently, the street is one of the most important streets of Beirut’s nightlife.
The city is named after the sycamore tree that spreads through the streets and regions of Lebanon. The name is two novels. The first is given the name to a huge sycamore tree under which men and men gather edited cards and dice tables and then cut to build a café called Jamiza Café. The second version says that one of the rulers cut a huge sycamore tree that was in place to use its wood. The old name of the tita is said to be “al-Bayara”, a Lebanese colloquial word for a range of water wells, so that there are many wells in the area.
In the area there is an ancient archaeological staircase that is considered one of Beirut’s monuments. It was a artisanal area that produced kibbeh, sweat drink and soap. It has many prestigious schools such as St. Fay, Freer and Three Moons. The first Arab accelerator, the Marne Al-Naqash Theatre, was built there.
