Named after of the First Prime Minister of independent Lebanon, Riad El Solh Square, with its an eponymous statue by Renato Marino Mazzacurati (Italy), is a major national and urban space. Overlooked by the Grand Serail, surrounded by such 

landmark buildings as UN House, the Grand Theater and The Landmark tower, it is a converging point for commuters coming from Bachoura, Salim Salam, Zokak El Blatt and Weygand streets.
