DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
The tyre is the fourth largest city in 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.
There the area is an important nesting site for sea turtles. Will give you a useful presentation on the reserve.
We will explore the natural beauty of the white sandy beach and visit its remarkable historical sites; we will sail on a beautiful boat along the coast for approximately 35 min approx. and admire from distance the ancient ruins of the city and the small island “Al Zire”.
