Citadel Saint Gilles (Qal'at Sinjil) If you're ever in Tripoli = most certainly worth a visi


The site is surprisingly well maintained, and a must for history buffs. Find a local guide to explain the history of the place and you can walk around undisturbed and quietly in this place (no tourists Tripoli hasn’t exactly a good reputation for the moment and is declared off-limits in the travel advice of most Western Consulates) But if you know a local who can take you and who knows where to go when, this is the time to visit. Oh and did I mention the superb views over the old city of Tripoli you get from the Citadel?
