One of the best preserved crusader areas anywhere in the world and I highly recommend you come and take advantage of the space before it explodes as a tourist destination. Contact Wisam Kharouf as a guide (TA) and dream away into being where the knights...More

There's a lot to explore in this medieval Crusader's fortress. The architectural features like vaulted ceilings etc are beautiful, and there are interesting multimedia projections on the walls.

Yesterday we visited this fort with high hopes. We entered an attractive courtyard and then watched a very good orientation video before being guided around the fort. There were some good effects such as the moving procession of people in outline, against a wall, as...More

I’m a history dork, so this scratched my itch during our trip to Israel. I don’t believe it was very expensive, maybe NIS 30 per person. If you speak English, don’t bother with the audio guides, they don’t work that well and won’t provide as...More

Leave enough time for this fortress. It’s big and demands time to explore, it’s also cool on the inside when it’s 30+ degrees outside.

Great place, top notch facility, amazing reconstruction and information and impressive scale. The audio system is FRUSTRATING, especially with kids. The units are old, don’t really work, start and stop semi randomly - time to upgrade this.

Here you have two options, the limited consolidated pass for 40NIS or the full pass for 62NIS which includes the Turkish Bath. The limited pass gives you access to the Crusader City (including audio tour), Templar Tunnels, Treasures in the Wall Museum and Okashi art...More

Very beautiful place!!! Take a time to explore that place as much as you can! It takes at least 2 hours.

We arrived at noon, and impressed by the underground city, its huge and well reserved. Great visual projections on the walls, also have digital guide you can take with you on the entrence. The kids also add great time and bought Knight swords. Recommended.

One ticket is all you need. Follow arrows on the floor. You should allow two hours, but it could also get to be twice the time if you really get into it.

Strongly suggest a carrier if you plan on touring the Templar tunnels and walking the fortress walls. There are numerous steps and uneven walkways, some from cobblestone so pushing a stroller would be problematic. Enjoy
