    Aljun Castle Tower

    Tower at Aljun Castle

    Favorite thing: The view of this tower is just amazing appearing out of the fog. The original castle had four corner towers, of which you can see only the ruins of two of them. Arrow slits were incorporated in the wall and it was surrounded by a moat averaging 16 metres in width and 12-15 metres in depth.

    Inside the Castle

    Inside Aljun Castle

    Favorite thing: The inside of the castle is well lit and gives you an idea of what it was like to live during the crusades. Go up to the gate and see where they planned to dump burning oil on invaders. Now aren't you glad that we live in a "civilized" world of atomic and smart bombs?

    Archer's Window

    Aljun Castle Archer's Window

    Favorite thing: Take a look outside of the many archer's windows that are located around the castle. Imagine that you see the enemy armies approaching and that you are the archer. Alternatively, find a car travelling on the road in the distance and pretend to crush it like a bug.

    Exploring the Castle

    Me at Aljun Castle

    Favorite thing: Exploring every inch of the castle is worth it. There are countless areas that you can find. It's full of dark rooms, old banquet halls, and steep staircases.
