Another castle located further south, just before Petra, called Shobak Once called “Mont Real”, Shobak dates from the same turbulent period as Karak. It is perched on the side of a mountain, with a grand sweep of fruit trees below. The castle’s exterior is impressive, with a forbidding gate and encircling triple wall.
