About Iudyn Yehiam Castle

A former Crusader Castle, Iudyn is now part of the Yehi'am Fortress National Park. The crusader fortress was largely destroyed by the forces of Mamluk Sultan Baibars and a later fortress was rebuilt on the site before being largely ruined in the eighteenth century. Today little remains of the castle itself but the park remains a pretty location to explore.
