  • We took the full ticket and this activity was included. While it shows that there is little of the original tunnel, we really enjoyed getting into the skin of the crusaders for a moment

  • A must see for all you travelers looking for great historical sights. Plan to spend the better part of a day and love every part of it.
  • This 150 metre tunnel extends between the Templars' fortress in the west to the city's port in the east. It served as a strategic underground passageway that connected the palace to the port. The lower part of the tunnel is carved into the natural stone with the upper part built from quarried stone.
