(Roman and Byzantine remains - 36 km from Beirut)
Ghineh village in the foothills above Jounieh is interesting for its Roman and Byzantine remains found at a place known as "Keb'al el-Hosain." A well marked stepped path descends from the village, where you will find the ruins of a Roman temple that in the 5th century was made into a church with a mosaic floor. Nearby are rock-cut tombs with funerary bas reliefs above the entrances. One of the scenes is a Roman funerary rock carving representing a wild animal attacking a hunter. Local tradition says this is a representation of Phoenicia's god, Adonis, being killed by a wild boar.
