This is definitely a "must see" if visiting Byblos. The highlight of our visit was visiting The Crusader. Fascinating history and museum. On hot days make sure you bring a hat, sunscreen & water as there isn't much shady areas and lots of walking and...More
Enjoyed wandering around this beautiful partiality restored space. Some interesting exhibits though it would benefit from more. Having a guide with you might be helpful. Lovely panoramic views of the sea and town.
Wow - a truly incredible place. You have everything from the crusader castle, which you can climb to the top of for a stunning view of Byblos and the sea, to a Roman amphitheatre, to a Phonetician temple. If you're staying in Beirut, then you...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...
