Sidon Sea Castle captured with a wide angle lens

It was one of the most important Phoenician cities, and may have been the oldest. From here, and other ports, a great Mediterranean commercial empire was founded. Homer praised the skill of its craftsmen in producing glass and purple dyes. It was also from here that a colonising party went to found the city of Tyre.

remark: on the map you see the castle right of the harbour connected with a small way to the land
