Tourism minister visits Qasr Hallabat

Tourism Minister Nayef Al Fayez on Tuesday, accompanied by Spanish Ambassador to Jordan Javier Sangro de Liniers, visited Qasr Hallabat, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Restoration work at the site started in 2002 as part of an agreement between the ministry and the Spanish Agency for International Cooperation.

In addition to 1.25 million euros in funding, the Spanish government provided the ministry with training on archaeological renovation.

Qasr Al Hallabat, located 60 kilometres away from the capital, is one of the Kingdom’s desert castles, a series of fortresses built by the Romans around the 2nd century to cement their presence in the Levant.
