Gebran Khalil Gebran gallery is located in downtown Besharre. Who is Gebran Khalil Gebran? Do we call him “the Prophet” his nickname? How many books he wrote and how many languages were translated to? Is his famous book still a bestseller? And his paintings, what do you think of them? All this and much more inside this humble old monastery converted into a nice gallery half curved in a giant rocky mountain…
