Breakfast and morning leisure…

The city of Kerak was the capital of Moab and was also used by the Greeks and Romans. The castle lies on the ancient caravan routes that used to connect Egypt to Syria, and its commanding position almost 1000 meters above the Dead Sea Valley made it a strategic asset of great importance.
