Quotes from the Crusade Period

"The town of Tripoli AlSham is a great town. It has a large wall surrounding it. IT is made of strong stones. The city includes orchards of olive trees, grapes, sugar cans, and many other fruit trees. It has lots of imports and exports. It is one of the most visited city of the Sham area, mainly for business."

El-Sherif El-Idrisi (548 H/1154 CE), "Nuzhat alMushtaq fi Ikhtiraq alAfaq"
