The Triumphal Arch of Tyre is one of the city’s most impressive archaeological relics. The arch stands over a long avenue which has a necropolis on either side and sarcophagi dating as early as the 2nd century BCE.

The site is named Al-Bass and along with the arch and necropolis are the remains for large aqueducts which carried water to the city as well as the largest, best-preserved Roman hippodrome in the world – larger even than the Circus Maximus in Rome herself.
