  • Fascinating. Well restored and maintained with extensive signage displaying the history. The audio guide really adds to the experience. You have a choice of several combo tickets. I chose one that provided entrance to the main citadel, the Templars' Tunnel, the Okashi Museum and the Treasures in the Wall museum. To be honest, this was a waste of money - the other venues are not particularly close by, and with the possible exception of the Tunnel, they were not worth the effort of visiting.
  • Fascinating, beautiful, well kept and full of history. Don't miss it while in Israel.
  • Great Crusaders site.Renewed museum very well done.
  • Very special place with its own atmosphere and the spirit of medewial castle. Audioguide in 8 languages.
  • Absolutely incredible!!! Loved this place and the Audio guide is so good
