Greater Beirut (Arabic: بيروت الكبرى; French: Grand Beyrouth) is the urban agglomeration comprising the city of Beirut (Beirut Governorate) and the adjacent (municipalities) over the Mount Lebanon Governorate. Thus, it does not constitute a single administrative unit. The conurbation spreads south, east and north of Beirut city. To the west, the Eastern Mediterranean sea serves as a natural boundary.
There are about 2.2 million people in Greater Beirut. 45% are Muslims, 25% Sunni (in the central and west of Beirut), and 20% Shia (in the south); and about 44% are Christian (in the north and east), and 5% other minorities.
