Kefraya

Kefraya has a Romano-Byzantine grape mill located among the agricultural terraces outside the center of the village. Visiting the Dahr el Moghor hypogea (underground dwellings) from the Roman and Byzantine era near the Boustros palace is a must.

The five hypogea are dug into the rock of a small hill situated in the middle of the Kefraya vineyard. Kefraya also has an old mosque built in 1935 (the minaret was added in 1959) and a church built in 1960.

A visit to Chateau Kefraya is recommended as well as the Chateau of Michel de Boustros. Visitors can enjoy wine tasting, eat a meal, or shop at the show room.
