Lebanon - DESTINATIONS & HOTELS

Enfeh

Dating back to ancient times, mentioned several times in Tell el Amarna and sources from the 14th century B.C, you will discover remnants of a Crusader castle founded on a peninsula 400 meters long and 120 meters wide. 

The peninsula is divided by two parallel trenches, 100 meters long, 12 to 15 meters wide and around 8 or 10 meters high, cut into the rocks to provide security for the castle. There is almost nothing left from this Crusader castle with its twelve towers, destroyed at the end of the 13th century.  Today there are the remains of pressing mills and burial crypts. On the seashore lies the Crusader church of Our Lady of the Wind with murals on the walls, partially damaged by time.
