Uncover the mystery that lies beneath Akko’s old city streets in the mysterious Templars Tunnel.

Hidden for 500 years, this well-preserved site was discovered by a local plumber in 1994. It spans from the fortress to the old city harbor, and was previously the Templars’ secret escape route in case of attack. Now, it’s a staple of an Akko Old City adventure, and perfectly accompanies a visit to the Crusader Fortress. Enter at one end of the city and exit at the other, just as the Templars' did. In between, discover a glimpse into Crusader architecture and history, informed by descriptive plaques and images. 



Address: Eastern entrance near Khan Al-Umdan, Western entrance near the modern lighthouse
