It is Lebanon’s greatest treasure, and it can be counted among the wonders of the ancient world, containing some of the largest and best-preserved ruins. Towering high above the Bekaa plain, their monumental proportions proclaimed the power and wealth of Imperial Rome. The Gods worshiped here, the triad of Jupiter, Venus and Bacchus, were grafted onto the indigenous deities of Hadad, Atargatis and a young male God of fertility. Local influences are also seen in the planning and layout of the temples, which vary from the classic Roman design to other more recent civilizations. We will visit the temple complex made up of Jupiter’s Temple, Bacchus Temple adjacent to it and a short distance away the Temple of Venus.
