Sidon Sea Castle by night | قلعة صيدا البحرية from Lebanon

Sidon (Saida in Arabic) Sea Castle is a castle in Sidon, Lebanon. It was built by the Crusaders in 1228 on a small island connected to the mainland by a causeway. A climb to the top leads to the roof where there is a good view of the port and the old part of the city.
