18 Churches at Montreal Crusader Castle in Shoubak, Jordan

The Montreal Castle had two churches. This more elaborate Latin Christian church with double arches included a baptistery. The second served the Orthodox religion and was much smaller. Beneath it are catacombs including Christian and Muslim artifacts plus Saladin’s throne. Unlike several famous ancient sites in Jordan, the Montreal Castle has not received the same level of archeological attention. But fortunately it is also not visited by as many tourists. So you and your group may have the chance to explore this Medieval castle alone.
