DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
We all have heard talking about Tyr’s beautiful white sandy beach which was declared a natural reserved in 1998 and includes the sandy beach, fresh water springs and agriculture land. It is one of the most beautiful shores in Lebanon.
Tyre is the fourth largest city of Lebanon. It was an island in past ages, celebrated for its beauty. Tyre emerges today from the debris of centuries. Excavations on the site have uncovered remains of the Crusader, Arab, Byzantine and Greek-Roman cities.
The Greeks believed that various aspects of their civilization had their origin in Tyre.
The introduction of the alphabet into Greece was attributed to Cadmus of Tyre, and it was Europa, the sister of Cadmus, who gave her name to the continent.
Herodotus of Halicarnassus, “Father of History” visited Tyre during the 5th century B.C. and described the famous Temple of Melkart (Heracles). The priests of the city-gold told him that the temple was built 2300 years previously when Tyre was founded, that is 2750 B.C.
Early in the 6th century B.C. Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, lay siege to the city for 13 years. Later Alexander the Great stormed Tyre without success for seven months.
Tyr’s purple dye industries brought to the city great wealth and renown.
Will give you useful presentation on the reserve. There the area is an important nesting site for sea turtles.
Lunch will be at the white sandy beach; Lebanese mezza, and fish, served with one soft drink.
