Top Descriptions

Aqaba’s 16th century castle is a small and dusty ruins and doesn’t quite compare to the other wonderful treasures Jordan has to offer such as . A few small walkways take you around the outer crumbled walls of what would have been rooms. – Sarah

Top Tips

It seems the stated opening times are not always adhered to and parts of the castle are under renovation. Check with locals or your hotel that the site is indeed open before heading here.
There are a couple of cafes and restaurants surrounding the castle, should you need refreshments.
The museum is included in the price of the castle but may not be open.
Though there isn’t much here, this is the only real historical attraction in and worth popping in to get off the busy streets for a little while.
