To the east of Lattakia, 410 m above sea level, the Saladin castle is situated on a ledge surrounded by two natural ditches what makes the castle impregnable, provided the draw-bridge has been pulled up.

The castle has remains from Byzantinian days. Before crusaders took the castle, it was the apple of discord between the Byzantinians and the Hamadani.

 

This castle was built as fortress under the rule of crusader Robert de Saône, then taken by Salah ed-Din and enlarged. It is now being restored on a large scale.
