Honestly i didnot have enough time to take a boat in-order to reach the Castile as it is full surrounded by water to the coast side of Taba, a brilliant place to locate a place to defend egypt against attackers from the sea before landing on shore.

It captures the spirit and atmosphere of medieval heyday of the empire of the Seljuk Turks. From the height of the set has a beautiful view of the sea and the coast. I recommend... More
