The uderground “knights Halls” complex in Akko is an amazing maze of 800 year old speciou halls, some completly intact, that served as the Crusaders’ headquaters after their retreat from Jerusalem. 

They were built and contolled by the “Hospitallers” and had several function. One hall was refectory, and had a secret tunnel beneath it; one was probably a prison; and one served as a public latrine..
