(Fossil Fish 53 and 72 km)

    The heights above Byblos are known for their limestone formations containing fossilized fish, crustaceans, and specimens of flora and fauna. Laid down between 60 to 100 million years ago, when the region was still part of a seabed, these fossils have been studied by scientific organizations around the world. Specimens can be seen at the Fossil Museum in Byblos, while in the village of Haqel there is a showroom where they can be purchased.
