There is not a lot to see as this is quite a sleepy little town. Old walls to show what The Crusaders built. Very impressive and worth seeing. Not very touristy so you can take your time.

There is so much to see and experience in this old city, recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Parts date back to the time of the bible but there is large number of sites to see from Crusaders' time. Don't miss the Hospitaller Fortress...More
