Shobak Castle Tour

Montreal (Crusader Castle)

Add a sense of adventure to your stopover with an enchanting tour of Shobak Castle. Perched in a wild, remote landscape, Shobak Castle wins over even the most castle-weary, with its amazingly captivating architecture. Formerly called Mons Realis (Mont Real, or Montreal – the Royal Mountain), it was built by the crusader King Baldwin I in 1115.

Led by the castle's caretaker, and with the help of a torch, you will be shown around the castle's many dark corners. As you climb up from the entrance, explore the wells to your left. Soon after passing these, you'll be able to see the reconstructed church, one of two in the castle, down to your left.

Enjoy an interesting show held at the castle 5 times a day, 6 days a week. The show is a re-enactment of the Ayyoubi era, featuring a battle between the Ayyoubi's and warriors dressed completely in black.

Show timings:

Saturday - Monday - Wednesday: 9 am, 10 am, 11 am, 12 pm, 1:30 pm

Sunday - Tuesday – Thursday: 10 am, 11 am, 12 pm, 1:30 pm

After that you can enjoy a delicious lunch at a local restaurant, and then head back to the airport for departure.
