I found this castle more interesting than the one in Karak and a lot more preserved. Panels are all around to explain and the restorations have been well made. Very nice view of the surroundings, it changes from the Southern desert!

We had an excellent trip to Jordan this past February. Mona Naffa at Monaco Business Development was wonderful to deal with. The visit to Ajloun was interesting historically.
