Crac de Chevaliers Castle Tour

Built for the Emir of Aleppo in 1031 and captured by the Crusaders in 1099, Crac De Chevaliers is one of the most important and well preserved medieval military castles in the world.

Expanded and reinforced over 2 centuries by the Crusader 'Knights Hospitaller' inhabitants, beseiged and over run by Mamluk Sultan Baibars in 1271, brought and restored by the French in the 1930's, and made a World Heritage Site in 2006 - today the castle is owned by the Syrian Government and is open to the public.

Loving that history!
