Beyond Masada / A short climb up to Fortress Tzuba
Revel in history at this off-the-beaten-path Crusader stronghold, where the subjugation of Israel to medieval Europe looms large.
Fortress Tzuba is a nice little bonus that transforms the otherwise ordinary Tel Aviv-Jerusalem drive into an excursion. Find it by accident, and you’ll gasp – “Am I suddenly on the wrong side of Europe?” You won’t be completely wrong, either. Fortress Tzuba looks like a medieval Scottish Border castle that somehow missed the attention of restorers.
