Byblos Photo Diary
This is Byblos – one of my favorite places in Lebanon. It was built as the first city of Phoenicia and it is believed to have been occupied first between 8800 and 7000 BC making it the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world. The city's known for its ancient port, Phoenician, Roman and Crusader ruins, sandy beaches, fish restaurants, open-air bars and outdoor cafes. It's also known for the little traditional house that was built in the beginning of the 20th century.
I wanted to see Byblos one last time before leaving Lebanon for another year, so my friends and I spent an afternoon there visiting the citadel, eating ice cream (funny how every one of my adventures involves ice cream) and watching the sunset, while drinking a glass of rosé. More photos after the jump.
