Nizwa Fort, Nizwa Overview

Nizwa Fort is Oman’s most visited and most famous monument and fort. Unlike its counterpart the Bahla Fort, this 17th century fort has not yet been included under UNESCO’s World Heritage Site. What it lacks in prominence, it makes up for in exhibits and study conducted intended to reveal the glorious past of the city.

The fort and the information inscribed inside sheds a fascinating detail on the influence and importance of the fort. On Fridays, there is yet another sight to watch as locals bring their herds of sheep, goats and camels and parade them. The souq nearby also provides an excellent choice from a wide range of souvenirs to choose from.
