A visit to Tyre, Lebanon

Tyre, or “Sur”, as it is called in Arabic, is a big city in the south of Lebanon and was heavily damaged in the 2006 war with Israel. Nowadays, Sur has a thriving little souk, roman baths and the remains of what used to be a “circus maximus” from the Roman era. Right next to the archaeological site is one of Lebanons smallest Palestinian camps, Al Bass refugee camp.
