Local Liban

Sidon region

Sarafand (Arabic: الصرفند) is a village in southern Lebanon located 10 km south of Sidon overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

Its name conserves that of the Phoenician site of Sarepta, just north of Sarafand.

It is located at a distance of approximately 60 kilometers south of Beirut, its core being approximately 1.5 km from the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Sarafand was primarily a center of ceramic production and today is known for its glassblowing artisan activity.

To the north of Sarafand is the site of the ancient Phoenician fortified city of Sarepta, which was already mentioned in the Bible and in Assyrian and Egyptian texts as a city of Sidon.
