This almost fairytale-like castle was build on one of the ancient seven wonders of the world, Alexandria's ancient lighthouse.
It is a great feeling to wander through the castle and it also gives you great views over the Mediterranean Sea as well as Alexandria.
Just before you enter the fort you will find a small museum which has some weird things on display..:-)

Address: Alexandria
