The Baalbeck site or Heliopolis (city of the sun) in the Beeka Valley has the most impressive Phoenician, Roman and Greek temple ruins of the Middle East.
Entrance to the ruins is via the monumental staircase leading to the Propylaea with a portico flanked by two towers and a collonade along the facade.
The first court, before entering the Main Court is the Hexagonal Court.
We entered early morning, when there were not many visitors yet and the temperature was just nice.
Entrance 4.000 LL

Directions: In the Beeka Valley, 86 KM north east of Beirut.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
