Baalbek

Baalbek (UNESCO)  

Located in the Bekaa valley and at 1,170 meters above sea level, Baalbek is home to the largest and best-preserved examples of Roman architecture standing proudly in the city. An 85 km drive away from Beirut, this marvellous example of historical architecture is an important piece of Lebanon’s history and should not be missed.  Those standing before the spectacular row of age-old pillars of this UNESCO World Heritage site will be stunned by the beauty and the elegance of the site which was built by the Romans to pay tribute to the god of the sun (Baal) and the gods of Jupiter, Venus and Mercury.
