This is a very historical ancient fortress used by the crusaders during the Holy Crusades in Palestine. Very interested to learn the stories behind this fortress .......

Very interesting but the Tunnels which are linked are too tiny for claustrophobes!

Family connections with the Fortress dating back to Israel's War of Independence made this especially poignant for me/us. (My husband's father and my father were fighting on opposite sides - it's strange to think that we have come together and visited this place where one was sentenced to hang as a terrorist and the other was his British guard).

So fun and interesting to wander around all of the ruins and remnants of the Crusades. Visiting here helps to put the various time periods of history into perspective. The audioguide around the various Crusader sites is quite helpful.

The tour was helpful in trying to understand the tangled 5,000 year history of this region of the Middle East.

It was under refurbishment. There was carpenters running about and there were fans and work lamps all over. It ruined the medieval feeling we almost had.

Probably it will be quite nice when finished though.

Also it's pretty tacky to be led out again through a souvenir shop...
