The subterranean passageway shown to the left connected the castles of the two orders. It may have been an emergency escape route. Having been in the passage, I can tell you that it is a tight squeeze for a modern Sir Knight!

The vaulted ceilings are classic examples of the gothic architecture used by the Templars when constructing their castles and chapels. These columns have been preserved by binding them together with metal bands.

The Templars who escaped the last siege did so by ship from this Mediterranean port.
