Salhieh (Arabic: صالحية) is a village in the Sidon District of the South Governorate in Lebanon. It is located 45 kilometres (28 mi) from Beirut.[1]


In 1838, Eli Smith noted es-Salihiyeh, as a village located in "Aklim et-Tuffah, adjacent to Seida".[2]

In 1875 Victor Guérin traveled in the region, and noted: "I go up to Salhaieh, through gardens planted with fig trees, olive trees and mulberry trees. It is located on a beautiful and high hill, 2 kilometers west-northwest of Kefr Djerra. Its population exceeds 400 inhabitants, Maronites or United Greeks. The church and a number of houses are newly built, with more or less regular stones that have been partly found on site. A spring collected under an ogival vault is next to several ancient tombs."[3]

Il est situé sur une belle et haute colline, à 2 kilomètres à l'ouest-nord-ouest de Kefr Djerra. Sa population dépasse 400 habitants, Maronites ou Grecs unis. L'église et un certain nombre de maisons sont nouvellement construites, avec des pierres plus ou moins régulières qui ont été en partie trouvées sur place. Une source recueillie sous une voute ogivale avoisine plusieurs tombeaux antiques"
