The crusader castle of Crac des Chevaliers is very big, don't think you'll be out of there in half an hour. We walked more than 2 hours in the castle, admiring the inner courtyards or the ruins of what was left.
This is the view you have when arriving with a bus near the famous site
Crac (or Krak) des Chevaliers is the name of the mighty 12th century Crusader castle, situated on a hilltop 29 miles west of Homs and 19 miles from Tartus on the Mediterranean coast
This is teh outer wall of the castle. I haven't got the faintest idea from which century the last restoration dates.
The original Crusader castle was from the 12th century
