Saint Hilarion Castle stands near the city of Karmi. The castle and its surrounding is a very nice and scenic place. There are large gardens with marvelous flowers and interesting castle stairs rise up to the castle entrance. A monk called Hilarion, who was expelled from Israeli, lived in a cave near the castle. In the 10th century were built a church and monastery on the spot where this monk was buried. Thanks to that is the castle called St.Hilarion now. Nowadays is possible to visit castle's kitchen, royal quarters and a chapel during the castle visit. A point of interest here is the tower of prince John. A legend says that the prince threw his bodyguards down from this tower, because he uncovered their treachery. The castle offers a nice view on the surrounding areas and when the weather is nice, it is possible to see the land of Turkey.
