Migdal Tzedek Ruins at Sunset

Originally built as the Mirabel Castle by a wealthy Crusader family in the 12th century, the Migdal Tzedek ruins have been occupied by many since then. This is due to its geographical location on a hilltop overlooking the 'Aphek Pass', the only passage north-south between the swamps and sea on the West and the hills of Judea and Samaria on the East. After the Crusaders, the Ottomans and then the Arabs, most recently the village of Majdal Yaba, were located in and around the current ruins of Migdal Tzedek.
