Chunks of the southwestern section of Sidon's Sea Castle broke off a few months ago and tourists are still being prevented from visiting what has been considered the better preserved tower of one the city's most historic sites.After the incident, the Sidon Municipality, which is responsible for tourist admission to the Sea Castle, informed the Culture Ministry's Directorate-General of Antiquities, which in turn dispatched a team of experts who examined the location and requested the municipality to prevent tourist access to the area. The last time the Sea Castle was renovated was around 20 years ago, when a new lighting system was installed.
