Anfeh is among the 11 Phoenician cities and towns that still exist today in Lebanon. In fact, this region is built on the ruins of cities that did not last long.

The remains of these civilizations include Phoenician and Roman walls, wine presses, mosaics, places of worship, caves, water tanks, and steps.

Anfeh is home to Saydet El Rih church, which is the first church dedicated to the Virgin Mary in the East.

This Byzantine church is believed to be built by the fisherman and the sailors of Anfeh so that Mary would protect them during their trips in the Mediterranean Sea.
