Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Matt., xvii:1.)-Banias Castle is about two miles from Cæsarea Philippi. We are looking toward the north in the photograph, and the mountain we see is Hermon, where Jesus took James, Peter and John, and was transfigured before them. The castle seen has stood there from the days of the Phœnicians. Its situation is remarkable. From its broken walls one may look away across the plains of Lake Huleh to the hills of Galilee. The castle is nearly 1,000 feet long by about 300 feet wide, and the walls in some places are 100 feet high. This is in many respects the most remarkable castle in the world, and has been called the Gibraltar of Palestine. It is now totally abandoned."
