The castle itself is amazing and looks like recently built. The view from their is so nice. It's not recommended for the old people because of the long stairs. If more explain boards are added this place will be excellent.

You will see the castle from the facing hill when you will enjoy it beauty and the beauty of the surrounding beaches. You will have also a view of four countries at the same time.

Historically fascinating...a kitchen, grain store, mosque and even bathrooms for the officers and all of this more than 1500 years ago. Beautiful to see, recommend viewing in the afternoon and watch out for some big drops....keep kids near you.

Well, Its a good place but it needs to be filled with its historical events, it also needs to be lightened at night...I guess it might give a great view and an image for Egypt especially that it is seen from the countires around it.
