chastelletChastellet ( French “Small fort”) is in fact one of the biggest forts built by the Crusaders in the Holy Land. Completed in 1179 next to the a significant pass of the Jordan River  , it was attacked, conquored and destroyed by Salah ed-din within the same year, and never used again for military purposes.

It’s remains are being exposed, in a small pace, for the last 20 years. Remains of a massive recent earthquake can also be seen.
