St. John of Byblos John is one of the oldest historical churches in the city with its history dating back to the beginnings of the 12th century where the Crusaders built them on the ruins of an ancient Roman church, before the Ottomans took advantage of them as a military fortress after they stormed the city, and by the 18th century the church became affiliated with the Maronite community in Lebanon after it was endowed by the Emir of Jbeil Yusef Al-Shihabi to Sheikh Saad Al-Khoury.
