On the sign:
חומת העיר הצלבנית
אתם נמצאים על תוואי חומת העיר הצלבנית. הצלבנים השתלטו על ערי החוף של ארץ-ישראל, וכך השיגו גישה לים התיכון וקשר עם ארצות אירופה. המבצר של העיר ארסור נבנה מעל הנמל על מנת לשמור על גישה ישירה לים.

The Crusader Town Wall
You are now standing at the location of the Crusader town wall. By capturing the cities along the coastal plain, the Crusaders were able to gain access to the Mediterranean, and maintain contacts with their homelands in Europe. The Arsour fortress was built above the harbor to maintain direct access to sea.
