Located in Iskandarounah in southern Lebanon, the castle of Scandelion (the other name of this city) was a crusader castle whose date of construction varies according to historians. Some place it in 1116 during the reign of Baldwin I of Jerusalem. Others estimate its construction date to be 1124. In any case, located on a hill, the castle allowed for the defense of the city of Tyre and its surroundings.
