Acre Citadel

The current building which constitutes the citadel of Acre is an Ottoman fortification, built on the foundation of the Hospitallerian citadel. The citadel was part of the city's defensive formation, reinforcing the northern wall. During the 20th century the citadel was used mainly as a prison and as the site for a gallows. During the British mandate period, activists of Jewish Zionist resistance movements were held prisoner there; some were executed there.

    Hi May,
    I did this tour 4 months ago and it was a wonderful experience! The day tour in Acre includes visiting in the Crusaders and Turkish underground city and crypt. We also walked through the Old City and the oriental market, the Arab mosque and the Old port. The convent of sister's of Zion is not included on the day tour of Jerusalem.
