Al Qala'a Lookout

The lookout is on the street level. It offers scenic views of the city and valley.

On top of the hill there is a large mosque, which towers over the modern town. On the site there was an Ayyubid fortress, destroyed by invading Mongols in 1260, rebuilt a year later by Mameluk rulers from Egypt, demolished yet again in 1840.
