  • A castle built in the sea, only a passageway to get to the shore, is definitely something different. And this is so. The Tower of this castle you can have a fantastic panoramic view of the old part of the city.

  • Built by the Crusaders in 1228 on some Phoenician remains this is a lovely little castle. Both the East and West towers, although somewhat ruinous, can be climbed but there are no railings anywhere so...  more »

  • Beautiful place but don't forget to go into the old souk there are many hidden places like old mosques churches schools and even homes that are inhibited.also there is a restored palace from the ottoman era.
  • An old great touristic place, but it's suffer from the governmental neglecting.. it's a good place to take pictures.
  • One of the best preserved sea castles in Lebanon, architecture at its best. A memorial for the Civil War was held today
  • Nice place , however some more safety measures could be taken.
  • Impressive place as its connected to the main road by an old bridge built by the crusaders , unfortunately destroyed few times so what you see its only a part of it . What's impressive is to be able to see the Roman column uses to reinforce the castle. True recycling crusade style! Unfortunately no guided tours available so read about it before you visita
