A small citadel built upon a massive rock, it overlooks the old caravan road linking Batroun to Triopoli. Its exact origins are unknown, but ideas range from a Crusader castle later used and reinforced by the Arabs to a fortress constructed by a local governor to protect the caravan route. It is believed to date from the 15th or 16th century.
