Knights' Hall Acre rating : 4 4 0 out of 5 / 19 votes

Underneath the Citadel and Acre Prison in the Old City of Acre, spectacular complex of 11th and 12th century crusader halls was uncovered. The fabulous complex was built by the Knights Hospitaller and is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular pieces of architecture in Israel. It is made up of six giant halls, a dungeon, a huge hall supported by eighteen massive pillars and a smaller hall known as the "Beautiful Hall." In addition, there is a crypt, dining hall that is accessed by a tunnel and the remains of a Gothic Church. In the 17th and 18th centuries the Ottoman authorities built palaces and offices above the Halls and they were later transformed in to a prison by the British.
