Aqaba

One of the main historical landmarks of Aqaba, was rebuilt by the Mamelukes in the sixteenth century. Square in shape and flanked by semicircular towers, the fort is marked with various inscriptions marking the latter period of the Islamic dynasty. Excavations at the ancient site of Ayla revealed a gate and city wall along with towers, buildings and a mosque.
