About Bagras Fortress
Orignally a Byzantine castle, Bagras was later occupied by the powerful Crusader force the Kinghts Templar. The Templars held Bagres for almost half a century before Saladin’s forces captured it in 1189. The fortress changed hands several more times before being left to ruin and abandoned. Today the castle ruins stand perched on a high hilltop and the remains of archways, outer walls and corridors can be explored.
