Sunaysilah Castle

Castle in Sur

Crowning a rocky eminence, this 300-year-old castle is built on a classic square plan with four round watchtowers. It was the most important part of the defensive system of Sur, a town that was greatly fortified to protect its illustrious overseas trade. A few artefacts help bring some of the rooms to life. You can't miss the castle as its presence looms over the town centre. The entrance is off Main St.
