Summary

A Crusaders citadel of the order of the Knights Hospitaller which is a part of the defense array of the Old City’s walls. This citadel is composed out of a complex of huge halls with magnificent arches and supporting pillars, which demonstrate the greatness of the Crusaders’ architecture during their rule of the city. These halls served for different purposes: meetings and ceremonies, Crusaders’ hospitality and dormitories, dinning room and the knights’ living quarters. A tour in this place is an architectural experience through which one can also learn and sense some of the crusaders’ way of life in Medieval times. Arrival: there is parking in the Knights' parking lot which is on Wiseman Street, at the entrance to the Old City of Acre (Akko).
