Krak des Chevaliers, the largest Crusader castle


Castles

The military crusaders themselves were mostly not noticeably interested in artistic matters, or sophisticated in their taste. Probably their most notable and influential artistic achievement was the Crusader castles, many of which achieve a stark, massive beauty. They developed the Byzantine methods of city-fortification for stand-alone castles far larger than any constructed before, either locally or in Europe.
