Baalbek, also called Heliopolis, is a spectacular archaeological site in northeastern Lebanon. From the 1st century BC and for two centuries, the Romans built three temples here for three gods: Jupiter, Bacchus and Venus. The best preserved temple at this place is the Bacchus temple, (pictured) built in 150 AD. The ancient Roman temple was dedicated to Bacchus, the Roman god of wine. Today, this whole move is one of the main tourist attractions of Lebanon.
