Akko Crusader Courtyard

by Mackenzie Landi

In 13th century Akko, the Hospitaller Fortress (Knights’ Halls) served as the Order’s central headquarters. By virtue of their massive wealth and power in the Land of Israel, the Hospitallers maintained a great deal of influence during the Crusader Period. The fortress inner courtyard, surrounded by a series of arcades and magnificent arches, was central to daily life in the Order. Here, knights practiced combat tactics and trained at least three times a week.
