Easy to access ruins that are in great shape. Awesome views of the valley. We spent a lot more time there than we thought we would - lots of interesting rooms and levels.

This fortress is in much better condition than you see anywhere else in Israel for its period. If you like these types of ruins, this is a must see. You can easily imagine what it was like in its time.

This fortress is definitely worth a visit. In addition to stunning views of the area, the history is fascinating and not well-known. The site is tended to well

strolling through the ruins of the fortress...we were there in 2011 and it tokes us 3 hours. You need hiking boots, a hat, water and a good camera.

They open on 8:00 until 16:00 in the winter( you should be out by then) There is no local guide, and you need to bring one with you or walk by yourself with the panflet the cashier gives you with the ticket
