the history comes alive as you tour the ancient structures in this area. Think of Saladin and the crusaders.

You can't imagine the grandness of the Citadel until you get there. The size of the building is inimaginable, and more that it was totally covered till 1950's!! Don't miss it.

This was the Gateway to the Mediterranean for 2000 years. So much history here and 100% worth seeing. Great views of the water as well!

Come and see for yourself, be amazed by its construction work. Walk the wall to see the fortification but don’t expect too much due to lack of preservation work

The Crusader Fortress left me in awe. How this beautiful fortress built over 700 years was dug out so many floors down, is a marvel. The place does a nice job of informing visitors how the Knights of St John welcomed Cristians. The tunnels were...More
