    by Clara_Louise

Who would have thought it- a fantastic castle, straight out of a Disney movie, in the middle of Syria?

A few hours by taxi from Hama- the trip can be organised by local hostels. Entrance fee is a couple of dollars and far less for students with an international student card. The castle is huge and well preserved. You are free to wander, climb and imagine. The setting is spectacular.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
