If ancient events interest you, then you’ll probably have the best time while you’re at Baalbeck, a town in Lebanon set in the Beqaa Valley, north of Damascus and northeast of Beirut. During the ancient times, it was called the Heliopolis. It has some of the country’s best preserved Roman ruins. It even has one of the empire’s biggest and most complex temples. As you can expect, it has many fascinating stories to tell about the early years.
Right now, the place is used as venue for the annual Baalbeck International Festival. It is also a top tourist attraction in Lebanon that welcomes thousands of tourists ever year.
