Bentael, called after daughter of GOD, is a Lebanese village hooked in the heights of the Jord among rocks, oak and Pine trees. Foxes wander in its valleys and multicolored butterflies sip the delicious liquid of the flowers.

A long time ago the people of Bentael searched for knowledge through pushing their studies to obtain higher diplomas. Local community is well known in art, philosophy, artisanal products, science and technology.
