Before you are remains of the moat and the wall that enclosed the Muslim city. In 1153 CE, the Crusaders conquered Ashqelon from the Muslims. In 1187 the Muslims, led by Saladin, drove the Crusaders out of the city, destroyed it and blocked up the port. The Crusaders returned to Ashqelon in 1192 under Richard the Lionheart. They restored the city and fortified it with a moat, a wall and towers. (The area of the city was 550 dunams). The wall was reinforced and partially rebuilt on a 10-meter-high glacis. The wall had 54 towers and a fortress in the southwestern corner. The city was accessed by four gates.
