    Baalbeck Things to Do

    By far one of the best preserved temples from the Graeco-Roman world, perhaps second only to the Pantheon in Rome, the Temple of Bacchus is the gem of Baalbek today. Despite its great proportions, larger than the Parthenon of Athens, the Temple of Bacchus was dwarfed by its neighbour, the Temple of Jupiter, and was thus known as the "small temple."...

    Located just east of the cardo maximus, near the entrance to the site, are the remains of the baths (hammam) of Aanjar. Two mosaic floors have survived fairly well, at least in fragments.
