"Monfort, crusader fortress" Montfort by Martin_S.

Montfort Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 23 photos

This is the highest tower of Monfort, overlooking the valley below. The Crusaders built this edifice to protect the trade route through this area. There is a second fortress, Yehiam, not far away.

Some of the walls remain standing go give you an idea of the comanding presence it once presented to passerbys.

Whenever you travel here in Israel, especially in the summer, take lots of water. The walk from the car park to Monfort today is only a few hundred meters, but it is a steep descent and then climb back, so take plenty of water, here you can see me with my water bottle....
