About Tyre (Sour)
79 km from Beirut.
Although the exact origins of Tyre are unknown, it probably dates back to the start of the third millennium BC. Tyre was originally a mainland settlement with an island city a short distance offshore. In the 10th century BC, King Hiram expanded the mainland and built 2 ports and a temple to Melkart, the city’s god. Towards the end of the 6th century BC under the reign of the Persian Darius, the city experienced its golden age.
With a flourishing maritime trade, Mediterranean and Atlantic colonies and purple dye and glass commodities, Tyre became very powerful and wealthy. But the city’s wealth attracted enemies. In the 6th century BC, Alexander the Great laid siege to it for 7 months, finally overwhelming the island city by constructing a great causeway from the shore to the island.
Centuries later, the Romans built a magnificent city at Tyre. The remains of its Roman streets, arcades and public buildings, including one of the largest hippodromes of the period, are Tyre’s major attractions today.
In 1979, Tyre’s important archaeological remains prompted UNESCO to make the town a world heritage site.
