#2 of 9 in Things to do in Sidon
Walk through the remains of a 13th-century structure at Crusaders Sea Castle, situated on a small island and linked to the mainland by a stone causeway. Erected by the Crusaders and destroyed by Mamluks, the structure was renovated in the 17th century, only to be further destroyed by subsequent local conflicts. Today, the structure consists of two towers connected by a stone wall. Use our Sidon holiday planner to arrange your visit to Crusaders Sea Castle and other attractions in Sidon.
