The Saladin Castle is one of the most impressive castles in Syria. It is built on a mountain ridge with two sharp ravines to its sides. Most of what can be seen of the castle today belongs to the construction made by the Crusaders who took the place in early 12th century. In 1188 Saladin and his men stormed the castle and got control of it.
From a distance it almost looks like the castle is part of the mountain.
