Qalat Arad

Fort in Muharraq Island

Built in the early 15th century by the Portuguese, Qalat Arad takes its name from the Greek name for Muharraq, Arados. The fort has been nicely restored, but there is little to see inside except the old well. Nonetheless, it's a pleasant location overlooking the bay, especially at sunset when locals flock to the neighbouring park.
