  • Byblos is one of the beautiful tourist destination in Lebanon. It is located approx. 40km far from Beirut city center, you required 35 to 40 minutes drive to reached Byblos. Byblos citadel is one of among those attractions that make your journey memorable. The entrance fee to the Citadel is 8000 Lebanese Lira. The views from the Citadel is unforgettable. You can view the entire Byblos from the top of the Citadel. Must must visit place in Byblos.
  • Loved it! Very clean and nice place. The proudest I've felt as a Catholic seeing the work the crusades have done ❤️
  • The Old ruin is located with a beautiful view of The coast of Byblos and is worth a visit. It gives nice look into The past of this Old city
