The modern lighthouse is located on the south-western corner of Acre, near the base of the Ottoman tower “Burj El Sanjak”. It is located over the foundations of the Crusaders Templar fortress, currently submerged in the bay near the lighthouse. A secret tunnel was discovered recently, that once connected the Templar’s fortress to the ancient port. The site is also the starting point of a walk over the southern walls, from the light house, to the marina on the eastern side. Map.
