Abu Al-Hosn Castle

Abu Al-Hosn Castle is a ruined castle located near the town of Joun, between the Mount Lebanon and the South Lebanon Governorates. The construction of the castle dates back to the Crusader periods in the 12th century AD, as it is likely that it was the "Belhocem Castle" mentioned by the Crusader historians, which was built on a fortified site to defend Sidon.
