Not specifically tied to the Crusades, but cities are missing prominent features or parts of the cities, famous monuments given a look, that they achieved much later, and topography along with scale is changed to suit the designers (this one i do understand, but it could have been much more subtle)
Jerusalem had plenty "wrong" in it. Other cities too.
