a small granite atoll surrounded by coral reefs and dominated by the magnificent Saladin fortress, built by Crusaders in the 12th century and recently restored by the Council of Egyptian Antiquities.Salah El-Din based his soldiers on this strategic island in order to control the trade of products coming from Asia and demand ransoms from pilgrims on their way to Mecca....
Amazing place. It was here in September 2015. Very impressive. Castle Rural location at sea. Surrounded on all sides by a red sea. Very thick walls. 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...
this place is very special that you can feel that strong culture richness once you step in. The citadel architecture and location just in the middle of water is nothing but a pure charm. you can't go to Taba without visiting this place.
i visited this castle more than three years.it was a fantastic castle.new trip and the location is wonderful you can see three countries from this castle (Jordan,Saudi Arabia and Elalt).i didn't see water like this like crystal and pure.
The castle itself is amazing and looks like recently built. The view from their is so nice. It's not recommended for the old people because of the long stairs. If more explain boards are added this place will be excellent.
