Roman Baths, Beirut

Ruin · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Once frequented by the people of the city, today Roman Baths testify to Beirut's ancient heritage. Discovered in 1968 in downtown Beirut, the baths remain under excavation, with one section now used as a public performance space. Wander between between several landscaped terraces, looking out over the four major bathing areas and studying the remains of a functional underground heating system. Once a meeting place for all citizens, the baths still attract locals and tourists alike, who congregate to watch performances and amble through the Mediterranean medicinal plant garden.

  • This is an awesome place. I was amazed that an excavated Roman Bath was available to visitors and at no cost. Lately, information boards have been installed. These enrich one's visit. It is a pity...  more »
  • A link to the past. Beirut should make more effort to preserve and expose the many ruins buried throughout the city. Uncovering them tells a much fuller narrative of the Levant, its history and its people.
  • Beautiful historic place in the amazing city, Beirut Phoenix will always rise
  • Atmosphere place. This is historical place near Great Mosque and Church. You can take nice pictures. Historical space is open for visit and also you can see this Roman Ruins from every corner all time (day/evening)
  • Beautifully renovated with garden. Saw it during Beirut Free Walking Tour! Worth the time!
  • I'm someone who's in love with everything ancient so I don't think I can ever rate an archeological site lower than 3 stars. What made me rate it a 5 is the way these ruins are kept and the spaces surrounding them are very clean and beautiful to walk through.
