And all this for a very simple price per person, with which you will get unforgettable visits to the Citadel of Tripoli, the bathroom and the antique markets.
These are really amazing places and worth your visit. And let’s start according to the program of the Citadel of Tripoli. This castle is a time submarine that takes you through the depths of different eras. It is made up of four layers. This is due to the succession of the greatest conquerors and civilizations.
And that starts from the time of its establishment in the seventh century AD by one of the Arab leaders. Then the Crusader invaders build parts of it. Through the Mamluk era, where its construction developed more and more. Finally, during the reign of the well-known Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, important improvements were made to it, to become an important war center in Tripoli.
And based on the design of the building or the part that you will see during your tour of the castle, you will undoubtedly know in which era it was built, especially with the presence of a professional tour guide who tells you the most important past events associated with that castle.
You will be really impressed by its vast halls that were used for meetings, soldiers and weapons, as well as the windows that were designated for cannons. There are also distinctive towers in the castle that are worth seeing and photographing.
After the castle, you have an excellent opportunity to shop and explore a group of wonderful antique monuments at the same time. This is by visiting the old city markets. It’s six markets that you can’t override in favor of another.
The first and most beautiful of these markets is the copper market, which was built in the Mamluk era, and sells copper products that can be wonderful souvenirs.
