This is the first place my tour guide brought me to, on my tour to Byblos. The castle has an entrance fee and well maintained. It has a small museum within it. On the far side of the castle lies the remains of a Roman...More

The Castle is in the middle of the touristic ancient city of Byblos, locally known as Jbeil, by the sea. 5 minutes walk from the historic port which is lined with charming good restaurants. It is no more than 5 min by car from Edde Sands beach/hotel & Byblos Sud hotel & resort. 40 min to 1 hour from Beirut central district Or from Beirut international airport. Plan 1 to 2 hours walk within the castle, choose a clear day because most of it is unroofed and overlooking the Mediteranean. It is romantic & cultural, guides are available, most are multilingual and make the visit more enriching. My advise is make a day outing, stop for lunch before or after your visit. If you visit between the months of May to October then take the 5 minute drive to one of the beaches after lunch enjoy the afternoon & stay on to watch the amazing sunsets...
