As reported by Fox News, a gothic ceremony hall was discovered in the study of the Montfort crusader castle. It is located on a hill in Upper Galilee in northern Israel.

The castle was built by German crusaders of the Teutonic Order in the 1220s. It was the residence of the great masters. In the summer of 1271 the fortress fell after a short siege – it took the arms of Mamluks.

The castle was destroyed by Beybars – Mamluk Sultan in Egypt and Syria to prevent reuse as a military fortress.

"Founding out of the findings is that it will help us understand the crusaders' castle, their design and architecture," says the Society President for the Study of the Crusades and Latin East Adrian Boas. In particular, we know more about Montfort Castle and its architecture. "
