  In the citadel, Trablous
by MalenaN

On a hill above Trablous old town is Qala’at Sanjil. In English it is called Citadel of Raymond de Saint-Giles. Saint-Giles was the founder of the first fortress, which was built here in the 12th century. It later burnet down and it has been rebuilt and repaired many times and because of that you will see many different architectural styles in the fortress.

In June 2002 the entrance fee was 7500 LL.
