On the sign:
סמל מיתוג של עיריית מודיעין מכבים רעות

המצודה
המצודה הצלבנית בפסגת התיתורה נבנתה בין השנים 1099-1260, והיא שהעניקה לגבעה את שמה הערבי אל-בורג’ שפירושו ’המצודה’.

הידעת?!
בעזרת המצודות שמרו הצלבנים על הדרך לירושלים, ובנייתן זהה לרוב: על ראש הגבעה חצר מרובעת מוקפת חומה ובמרכזה מגדל קומתיים רבוע. אל הקומה העליונה הוביל גרם מדרגות מזרחי.

Branding symbol of the Modiin Maccabim Reut Municipality

The fort
The Crusader fortress at the summit of Titura was built between the years 1099-1260, and it was the hill that gave the hill its Arabic name al-Burj, which means ’the fortress’.

Did you know ?!
With the help of the fortresses, the Crusaders guarded the road to Jerusalem, and their construction is usually the same: on the top of the hill is a square courtyard surrounded by a wall and in the center is a square two-story tower. An eastern staircase led to the upper floor.
