40KM North from Beirut is one of the oldest cities in the world - Byblos. Its well worth a day trip from Beirut...get a shared bus from Charles Helou bus station (3000 LL) which drops you off at the motorway and you walk down towards...More
This city is known to be the second oldest ancient city in the entire history. At least 3 different civilisations have lived here. You can see mosques, churches, old temples, various methods of burying people, different stones, Roman art and other while you are in...More
It is sad to see the lack of care and attention to this most significant of ancient sites. Rusty equipment, bags of wood and rubbish lie throughout the complex. This sadly detracts from the sense of importance this place holds in our history. Needs some...More
I don't enjoy byblos much (i'm not fussed about the souks or the port), apart from when I go to this site. It's definitely worth the entry, it combines history with nature and nice views. You can also hike to see the different ruins, and...More
I was doing a tour from Beirut, and the day started in Byblos with a visit to the Crusader Castle was how the day started.
Byblos is roughly a 45 minute drive from central Beirut, and while driving in Lebanon can be crazy (I visit...More
The Byblos Crusader castle is a view into the past. Up high after climbing many steps one can visualize the ruins and imagine what they were. Bake shop, meat shop. Living quarters, etc. Roman columns standind and fallen. The view at the top is great....More
When visiting Byblos, the Crusader Castle is a must visit. Situated in the heart of one of the ancient civilizations, the castle is adjacent to the sea. The Castle is a Roman Structure which is spectacular if you are fond of witnessing the historical monuments....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...
