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.
