Apheca, Lebanon 8 Picture

Apheca, known today in Arabic as Afqa or Afka, "source", is located in the mountains of Lebanon, six kilometers from the ancient city of Jebail, which still stands just east of the town of Qartaba. It is the site of one of the finest waterfalls in the mountains of the Middle East, which feeds into the River Adonis (known today as Nahr Ibrahim or "Abraham's river"), and forms the intermittent Lake Yammouneh, with which it is also associated by legend.
In Greek mythology Adonis was born and died at the foot of the falls in Apheca.
