The first fortifications were built in 18 days and Baldwin I took part in the construction. Although they write that the castle is impregnable, but it is not. In 1187, after the capture of Jerusalem, the castle was sucked by Saladin. The location nullified Saladin's hopes of quickly capturing the castle using siege machines. And only hunger and extreme exhaustion forced the defenders of the castle to surrender Shobak. Now the castle is in good condition, there is a massive outer wall, which impresses at the entrance to the castle. But the views of the neighborhood somehow I personally did not like, the views from Karak are much cooler. Tourists are few, but the castle is not so close to the main attractions and public transport to it does not go, only by car or tour.
It was really nice place to visit. Not as big as the Karak castle bus still it's not bad. There is a secret tunnel but it's closed due to the safety reasons, but we've found another one, with a dead end and we've met a bat there.
Nice castle with lovely views. The local guides are very nice and hospitable. Ask them for any information you require and they will give you the whole history of the place
