BAYROCK (RAWCHE ROCKS)
Located at Beirut’s westernmost tip, the two huge rock formations, which stand like gigantic sentinels, are a popular destination for locals and visitors alike.
Raouché also is claimed to be the remains of a sea monster the Greek hero Perseus killed to save Andromeda. The stone is rock as Perseus used Medusa’s head on the monster to turn it into stone. Some historians believe that the word “raouché” derives from the Aramaic word rosh or Arabic word Ras, both meaning head. Other historians argue that it is a French word roche (rocher), meaning rock.
