In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we visit the Baalbek Trilithon, an ancient temple complex in northern Lebanon that is not only one of the most well-preserved Roman ruins on Earth, but also one of the most overlooked architectural feats.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
