If you can grab a guide, guidebook or download some history before you visit as the history of this castle is so full of different occupiers over the centuries that it makes your mind boggle!

This is definitely one of the most worthwhile sites to visit in Lebanon. It involves a minimum amount of walking and is very exposed to the sun.

Byblos is super old and nice and well worth the detour. You can stroll the streets, visit the souks and the castle. The entrance isn’t expensive and you can walk and take many beautiful pictures.

No trip to Byblos is complete without the visit to the castle, which is not really a castle at all but rather an old city excavated through all dynasties that have occupied Byblos. We were encouraged by a local Lebanese to get a tour guide....More

I heard of the history, the souks, and the castle. Don't believe everything you hear. Byblos has a history for sure. The castle is rich with centuries of civilization and conquerors. However, it is best to secure a professional guide doing a guided tour. The...More

The castle is really old and it breathes this atmosphere from bach then...it doesn't take much to imagine how people lived here. Worth your time, every story of the building has it's own views, so climb when you can!
