Qennarit (Arabic: قناريت) is a local authority/village in the Sidon District in Lebanon. It is located 51 km southeast of Beirut.[1]


In 1875, Victor Guérin noted about the village: "Kennarit, a village inhabited by Metualis and which succeeded an ancient locality, as evidenced by a reservoir dug into the rock, several sepulchral caves and ancient quarries."[2]

A trois heures, je parviens à Kennarit, village habité par des Métualis et qui a succédé à une localité antique, comme le prouvent un réservoir creusé dans le roc, plusieurs grottes sépulcrales et d'anciennes carrières."
