Phoenician Port and Wall
In the fisherman harbor, the remains of the old Phoenician port are still visible.
The 225-meter long solid sandstone Phoenician sea wall is situated just south of it. Originally a sand dune, men started hewing it to take hard sand rocks for building temples, houses and other structures, which explains its present shape.
The Phoenicians used this wall as protection against sea storms and invaders, while during Roman times it again functioned as a quarry. The area is perfect for a small stroll or a lunch or dinner in one of its nearby fresh seafood restaurants.
