As early as 9000 BC, Baalbek passed through many civilizations: Mesopotamian, Roman, Christian and Islamic worship. The empire of Baalbek is considered as one of Lebanon’s most prized historical treasures, where people can discover the great three temples of Bacchus, Jupiter and Venus, and hear exciting tales about this old city, and how people built such huge structures.
Built by Caliph Walid I at the beginning of the 8th century, Anjar is the unique Umayyad site in Lebanon. This old city was once an important commercial center leading two important routes. Nowadays, Anjar is an interesting historical site in Lebanon, including two palaces, a mosque and a public bath.
