The site gave me a POV on how a Roman town looked like 2000 years ago. It is dutifully preserved by the locals and curators despite having ongoing civil disputes.

Yes, this is a must to see if you're ever in the great city of Tripoli. You can actually come up close and touch ancient Roman structure. Take as many pictures as you want and just enjoy being near this Arch.
