Usually tourists do this trip along with a visit to Baalbek temple in the Bekaa valley. It was a pleasant day to visit the ruins of Anjar. There was a ticket to purchase to visit the ruins. Interesting, Syria is just across the hill range...More

Yes, Baalbek is worth 1000 times more, but this site is very interesting too, and not badly preserved
