Marqab Castle, near Banyas

On the coast overlooking the Mediterranean is Marqab Castle, not as well preserved as Krak Des Chevaliers, but well worth a look. Some fragments of frescoes remain in a chamber off the chapel, but this is a site that needs some good restoration to bring it back to life. What should be a stunning prospect out over the sea is marred by a giant chemical factory and acres of poly-tunnels.
