Wadi Musa Castle
قلعة وادي موسى
Built in 1115-1116 CE, this Crusader castle is surrounded by two outer walls and square watchtowers, and takes advantage of difficult, mountainous terrain for protection. It includes a church, a gatehouse, cisterns, and communication bridges. The Wadi Musa Castle was the last of Jordan’s Crusader castles to fall to Saladin in 1189 CE.
