Kaukanaya

Kaukanaya is found south to the road uniting Qalb Lozeh with Qorqania little town. You can go directly from Qorqania also.
This site is notable for two tombs seen at the first instance, not far from the road. One of them is covered with pyramidal roof, inscribed 384 A.D. Next in the depth of the mass you see a two storey villa, which is notable for its beautiful columns. The site hosts also ruins of 3 churches.
