Baalbeck Lebanon

The Phoenician port Tyr is today the city of Sur. Tyr was known in Antiquity as the Queen of the Sea, in time the colonies, the glass industry, the sea trade turned it into a rich city. The excavated port was divided into a few areas: in the 1st area there is an island with particular buildings – colonnades, public baths, mosaic decorated streets and a rectangular arena. The old huge leaking canals and the dams of the port are still here today. The 3rd area comprises a vast necropole, magnificent  marble and stone sarcophaguses and a great racing track.

Tripoli is the capital of Northern Lebanon. This city has a big strategic advantage due to the existing natural ports and the access to the interior of the country, this is the reason why the Phoenicians once settled a trade center here. There are many religious old constructions here. St.Gillis Acropolis dates back from the crusaders’ period and the Lion’s Tower is the last tower in the mameluke period.

The Baalbek Temples

Baalbek the city of the Ball Goddess was built in pre Roman times. The great Temple of Jupiter only keeps 6 of the original 52 columns brought from Egypt.
