This is one of the largest Roman monolith ever quarried and there are several legends surrounding this stone which gave it this strong name. There is a platform from where you can view the stone from an elevated angle or you can go down and walk around the stone. An interesting piece of history and a good photo stop.

Everybody knows about Baalbeck archeological park. Not everybody knows about this wee site, which is a great introduction to the main one. First of all you can see possibly the biggest stone ever - how could anybody even lift it without modern technology? You can also see the ancient tombs. The visit here is free of charge. There are a lot of information boards which will allow you to learn more. It is definitely worth visiting.

If you've ever wondered where huge columns come from, you can see this quarry. One of the largest single blocks ever quarried, you are dwarfed by the size of this slab. Great quick visit.

This was a recommendation to visit - and it is a must see if you are in the area. The quarry, the huge stone and the tombs and above all the story which goes with it of one man's struggle against bureaucracy to do what is right. If you love Roman remains it's great but if you like a human interest story and to support maintaining our world heritage visit the site and support the guy who is running it himself.

Somebody in my tour called the 15 minutes here a waste of time but I don't agree. This huge stone is impressive and the "houses in the rocks" around it interesting
