Baalbeck, Lebanon’s greatest Roman treasure, can be counted among the wonders of the ancient world.

The largest and most noble Roman temples ever built, they are also among the best preserved. Towering high above the Beqqa plain, their monumental proportions proclaimed the power and wealth of Imperial Rome.

Today the city, 85 Kilometers from Beirut, is an important administrative and economic center in the northern Beqaa valley.

The Sites

The temple complex of Baalbeck is made up of the Jupiter Temple, the Bacchus Temple and the Venus Temple. Only part of the staircase remains of a fourth temple dedicated to Mercure, on Sheikh Abdullah hill.
