As you cross from Saifi Village towards Mar Maroun church in Gemmayze, you’ll see a very modern building across the church, only to be surprised that there’s a Roman bath inside of it!

In 2014, the Lebanese General Directorate of Antiquities restored and merged the site Saifi 616 with the new building, which is part of its main entrance. However, what you’ll see is the bath’s infrastructure, which includes fired clay or terracotta with some other mosaics still preserved.

You can always ask security till noon to contact the concierge and open up the gate for you to check it out, as long as it’s before afternoons (excluding Sundays).
