Knights Halls



In the heart of the land
Inside mother earth
The knights were planning their freedom
Now, free to eyes of the world
We breath in the tears of their effort
We can enjoy the beauty of what they left us
And cherish the freedom of our mother earth
Teach our children to not take it for granted
For their children's future and for mother earth


Under the citadel and prison of Acre, archeological excavations revealed a complex of halls, which was built and used by the Hospitallers Knights. This complex was a part of the Hospitallers' citadel, which was combined in the northern wall of Acre.

The complex includes:

* Six semi-joint halls.
* One large hall, recently excavated.
* Dungeon.
* Dining room (with a tunnel).
* Posta and Crypta (remains of an ancient Gothic church).

(Those interested in medieval European remains should also visit the Church of Saint George and adjacent houses at the Genovese Square (called Kikar ha-Genovezim or Kikar Genoa in Hebrew). There were also residential quarters and marketplaces run by merchants from Pisa and Amalfi in Crusader and medieval Acre, so today there are also Pisa and Amalfi Squares in the old city.)
