   North of the harbor of Sarafand lies Ras el Qantara. Located on a rocky promontory near a charming natural cove, it owes its name to a ruined Crusader monument. Only one course of stones and a broken arch survive, hence its Arabic name "Qantara," meaning "arch." The monument is reached by going through the main building at the Fouad Ville touristic complex.
