The Tyre-Damascus road climbs up to the Golan heights. Under the modern road near the western side of Banias, is the base of a Roman bridge. The bridge enabled the traffic to pass above the strong Banias stream and the Guveta stream which flows under the bridge. The city of Banias, or Caesarea-Philippi during the Roman period, appears on the Peutinger map as "Caferapaneas" (Kafar-Panias ).
