Nizwa Fort

Fort in Nizwa

Built over 12 years in the 17th century by Sultan Bin Saif Al Yaruba, the first imam of the Ya’aruba dynasty, the fort is famed for its 40m-tall round tower. It’s worth climbing to the top of the tower to gauge the scale of the surrounding date plantations and to admire the view of the Hajar Mountains that dominate the town.
