Nahr Ibrahim Aqueduct

Byblos District

· Mount-Lebanon

The Roman aqueduct of Nahr Ibrahim / Adonis is believed to have been constructed around the 2nd century AD when the Romans undertook massive infrastructure plans to develop coastal cities for economic and political purposes.

This particular aqueduct used to channel water to nearby towns, in particular Byblos, for the purpose of irrigation, bathing and drinking.Only one magnificent arch remains intact today while the rest of the structure was destroyed and its stones pillaged.

You can see the aqueduct on your way from Okaibe town towards Yahchouch village.
