The Citadel of Salah Ed-Din is located near the Mediterranean coast in Syria, in mountainous territory roughly 30km from the city of Latakia. The site dates back to the mid 10th century CE. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006.

Originally fortified during the 10th century CE, the castle remained under Byzantine control until 1108, when the Franks captured the area. It became a part of the Crusader state of Antioch until it was captured by the famed general Saladin on 29th July 1188 CE. The citadel remained in the hands of Saladin’s descendants until the 1280s.

The site has remained relatively well preserved, despite concerns that it had been endangered in the Syrian Civil War. It has currently not been significantly damaged.
