Shobak Castle Show

                             Shobak Castle Show

If you are on the way to Petra or near Petra area you might as well consider to include a short visit to the Crusader Castle in Shobak formerly known as Mont Real (Montreal) built by King Baldwin I in 1115AD.

Inside the preserved castle, you will see two churches, ruins of baths, cisterns, archways, old Islamic inscriptions and a deep tunnel with over 300 steps down leading in a well.

There's a Castle Show that runs every Saturday, Monday, and Thursday at the following time slots: 9:00am, 10:30am, 12:00noon and 1:30pm. The show is a re-enactment during the Ayyoubi decade/Saladin's era.
