The Citadel of Anfeh is located on a peninsula that is 400-meter long and 100-meter wide. That peninsula is known as "Raas Anfeh". The citadel is considered a Crusader remain, but it was an important place for many other civilizations. Many historical things like old graves, mosaic pieces, olive presses, and salt pans can be found in and around it.The citadel is characterized by its rock-cut  trench (Al-Khandaq). Historically, the trench, covered with sea water, was used to separate the citadel from the land during attacks on the citadel. A movable bridge was used as a path from and to the citadel, and its rocky base still exists.
