This governorate is named after the mountainous region of Mount Lebanon and, except for the small Beirut Governorate, spans the area along the Mediterranean coast between Lebanon's North Governorate and South Governorate.
Mount Lebanon is predominantly Christian. Maronites form the majority of the Kesrwan and Byblos districts, and a plurality in the Metn and Baabda districts (other Christian denominations such as Greek Orthodox, Armenian Orthodox, and Greek Catholics make up the rest of the population alongside Muslim minorities). The Druze are the majority in the Aley district and a plurality in the Chouf district (nearly equal in numbers with Sunni Muslims and Christians). Shia minorities exist in Baabda and Byblos districts, making up 25% and 20% of those regions, respectively.
