Spend this day touring around the most famous and beautiful fortresses in Oman. Built in different times, they give you a perfect understanding of the history and architecture of the Sultanate in bygone days. 


 
Head to the city of Nizwa, the capital of Oman until 1783. If the visit falls on a Friday, you will first visit the cattle market, where locals sell and buy animals. Here you will learn truly oriental bargaining skills. Another highlight of the city is its huge ever-buzzing souk located around an old Nizwa Fortress built in 1668 by imam Sultan Saif Bin Malik Al Yaruba. It is known for its huge rounded tower walls rising 24 meters above the ground. Today the fort houses the Museum of Nizwa that displays traditional handicrafts still practiced in the region. You will then pass by Bahla, where Oman's oldest and largest fort is located. It is built in the 13th and 14th centuries and is included to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The next stop will be at the impressive Jabrin Castle built in the 17th century by the Imam Bil'arab bin Sultan (1679-1692) of the Yaruba Dynasty. You will have your meal during your 9-hour-long trip. The tour in a saloon car or minibus includes entrance fees.
