Kaslik (Arabic: كسليك ‎) is a heavily urbanized Lebanese Maronite town located in the Keserwan District of Mount Lebanon. The town is home to a variety of 18th century Limestone houses, and a number of historic churches. However, the area was also subject to the rampant development of the Lebanese economic boom of the mid-twentieth century and has become heavily urbanized and now features a variety of factories and plants within its borders.
