Descripción del sitio
This remarkably well-preserved Crusader castle looks almost exactly as it would have 800 years ago. It guards the only major pass between Antakya in Turkey and Beirut in Lebanon; it was built and expanded between 1150 and 1250 and eventually housed a garrison of 2000. The castle held out against several attacks, but was lost to the Mamluk Sultan Beybar in 1271.
