  • On a round trip, almost everyone makes the stopover at this castle. The story itself is probably more interesting than the castle itself. I wouldn't see it as an absolute must, but if you have time, you can make a stop here!

  • Crusade Castle from year 1100- 1200.. For those who interested in history this one of the greatest structure crusade has left behind. With view of dead sea on the western taken from 4 stars Falcon Rock Hotel right opposite the Castle
  • This castle is amazing! It is perched on a huge bluff that is so high that the cars and buses on the roads below look like tiny toys. This is the only castle I've ever been in, so I was intrigued by everything I saw. It is NOT handicapped accessible, however.
