Afqa, Jbeil district

The Temple of Adonis dates from the 3rd century AD.  Its facade has six Corinthian columns and the sanctuary is partially built into the rocks. It was destroyed during the civil war (1975-1990) and some of its stones were stolen. The ruins are not far from the modern ski resort of Mzaar Kfardebian, about an hour from Beirut.
