The Beirut Souks is a major commercial district in Beirut Central District. With over 200 shops and a department store, it is Beirut's largest shopping area, as well as the most dense. Souq al-Tawileh and Souq al-Jamil were a favorite shopping destination before the civil war and were frequented by Lebanese and Europeans alike since they housed fashionable boutiques and haute-couture houses, while Souk al-Franj functioned as Lebanon’s biggest fruit, vegetable and flower market. They sustained irreparable damage during the Lebanese civil war and were rebuilt according to the ancient Greek street grid, maintaining the landmarks and original street names.
