Aqaba is the only coastal city of Jordan, and thus plays a major role in Jordan’s trade, as well as tourism.
In Biblical times it was under Solomon’s control, and in Classical and Mediaval periods it was a strategical city by the name “Aila”.
Remains from ancient times include an ancient church, and two Mediaval forts.
