The Castel is on the road to Jerusalem, situated about 2 km from Kibbutz Kiryat Anavim.

The Romans built at this strategic point the first fortress. The Crusaders have then built on their ruins, which remains are standing to the day. The view from the top is wonderful. Adventurers can weasel through the battle trenches that are still here from the Arab-Israeli war of 1948.
