Sidon's historical St. Louis Castle, or Qalaat al Muizz, which once served as a shelter for Palestinian refugees following the 1948 Nakba, will be renovated in a project after years of negligence.Repairing the castle is part of a series of renovations the municipality is working on that aim to safeguard Sidon's cultural legacy. The restorations will include touristic passage extending from Sidon's sea castle, Al-Shakreyah and the soap museum, up until the castle. The castle has been an attractive position for many historically due to its strategic location, which protects the city of Sidon from land and sea attack, and was even used by the French Vichy military forces during World War I. Additionally, there were historical cannons in the castle that are now being used to mark iftar time during Ramadan.
