Nimrod Fortress

The Nimrod Fortress is a 13th-century Muslim stronghold that commanded the road to city of Damascus after the fall of the Crusaders. Visitors can explore the remains of a spiral staircase, a secret passageway, wide halls, a huge water cistern and watchtowers, with magnificent views of the Hula Valley, the Upper Galilee, the Golan Heights, Mount Hermon and the mountains of Lebanon. Mark Twain called the fortress “probably the most exquisite ruins in the world.” The Nimrod Fortress can be reached from Kiryat Shmona, traveling east on road 99.
