The fortress stood on the top of the hill

An old fortress was built on the top of the hill. It was originally made by the crusader in 12th century. Nevertheless, it was still towering there about 800 years later. Because it was on the top of the hill, it was possible to look around the plain spreading around it from the fortress. This was why it was built here.

Yet it had finished taking its part for a long time already. The architecture in the fortress was abandoned and it became just a tourist attraction.
