Is Byblos Safe?


Byblos (also known as Jbeil in Arabic) is a city of Lebanon. The Greeks called it Byblos. It is a Mediterranean city in the Mount Lebanon Governorate Lebanon. The ancient site is on a piece of land that controls two bays, one to the north that houses the current port, the other to the south. Since this port were probably exported from wine, and a large amount of wood cedar of Lebanon to Egypt and Greece. The ancient site includes the ancient fortifications, Byblos Kings Tombs, including that of Ahiram, which was discovered in the sarcophagus on which is inscribed the oldest Phoenician transcription and finally the famous natural wells, original place of one of Oldest cities in the world. The sarcophagus of Ahiram is now on display at  National Museum of Beirut.

Byblos is located about 42 kilometres north of Beirut. It is attractive to archaeologists because of the successive layers of debris resulting from centuries of human habitation. It was first excavated by Pierre Montet from 1921 until 1924, followed by Maurice Dunand from 1925 over a period of forty years. It is said that you can find every layer of human civilization in Byblos, from the very first settlements around 6,000 BC or earlier, up to the present day. The whole history of humanity can be found here, and it is something you don’t want to miss!
