Byblos citadel represents the important part of old city ,which was along thousand years,the residence,and administrative work of all emperors ,and their assistants who governed this city ,all over history era ,
There are much finer examples of Roman ruins throughout Europe and the Middle East (Jerash in Jordan being a must see if this interests you). Byblos may well have historical significance, however the ruins that have survived to this day are nothing more than the outlines of former buildings.
