Near the Destroyed Altar, Faqra (Lebanon). Photo Jona Lendering.

In front of the Tower of Claudius, you can still see the remains of other altars. The Great Altar and the Small Altar have been restored in 1945, but there's also a heap of stones that was left as it was: a ruin.

A satellite photo of the altar area is here.
