Castles & Forts - Jabreen and Bahla
Experience the liveliness of the Friday Goat Market in Nizwa, where local farmers gather early in the morning to auction livestock. Visit the 17th-century Nizwa Fort, the largest and one of the oldest forts in Oman offers 360-degree views from its tower. And hunt for souvenirs in bustling Nizwa Souk. After a delicious lunch, visit the village of Birkat Al Mouz en route back to the resort, a lush oasis where bananas and date palms grow in abundance. Walk through the ruins of old houses that appear to emerge right out of the rocks, and observe one of the best examples of the ancient ‘falaj’ water system.
