Triumphal Arch - Al Bass

  • archaelogical site

Sour / Tyre, Tyre district

Built during the 2nd century A.D., and collapsed due to an earthquake during the 6th century A.D., the Triumphal Arch was constructed with decorated lime plaster which is still showing on some of its stones. The 20-meter-high central section has been reconstructed; it was preserved to its middle height when it was first discovered. Two lateral gates, once flanked by two towers, give access to the pedestrian road.
