  • An old great touristic place, but it's suffer from the governmental neglecting.. it's a good place to take pictures.
  • 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
  • It’s not really historically educating, but it has good views over the city and surrounding coastline. Be wary that the admissions guys will charge you double if you’re a foreigner.
  • One of Lebanon's great nature beauty located in the south of Beirut. Located near lots of shops/restaurants great place to shops for local items ...definitely worth going by to get a closer look. Beirut will always be Paris of the Arabic countries!
  • Incredibly beautiful. it helps if you read or learn about its historical relevance before visiting & go when the sky is clear! right across from its entrance is also a really delicious eat street with good falafel.. :)
