  • this castle has witnessed a long history and beneath it lies many ancient cities and history i would suggest to go with a tour guide to get the benefit and learn about it 
  • Compared to other site... This one is very small... But it's one of the things that a traveler must absolutely even at byblos... especially the sunset on the sea side... Too romantic

  • Byblos has a name that remember history, with Sidon and Tir... but few things to visit in B. and S. Here just this Citadelle. Go to Baalbeck! that is the Lebanon jewel.
