Why we love this tour
Visit the famous Nizwa Souq Market, Oman Fortress and get a spectacular view of the surrounding mountains!
- Impressive fortress
- Picturesque village Misfah Al Abreyeen
- The ancient town of Al Hamra
- Authentic old market
We'll go to the well-known Nizwa Souq (market), where a wide range of vendors sell their wares along the souq's streets. Here, you can find fruits, vegetables, pottery, jewelry, handicrafts, dates, dates spice, and souvenirs that are offered in genuine old market halls that not many places can claim. The Friday livestock market, where inhabitants from neighboring villages gather to sell their goats, cattle, sheep, and poultry in an outdoor market like a circus, is particularly fascinating.
Oman Fortress is located next to the Souq. The fort, which is now a museum, provides beautiful views of this historic town and the mountains in the area. This massive fortress is accessible by foot, and you can explore its countless rooms, corridors, and towers. The fort serves as an architectural reminder of the early Yaruba dynasty's military and economic prowess beginning in the middle of the seventeenth century. It was a military fortress built at the time to withstand even the most powerful assaults. To prevent any attackers from breaching the defenses, several traps were set up even along the corridors.
From Nizwa, we travel to Misfah Al Abreyeen, a lovely village with historic houses and winding lanes that is situated at the base of Jebel Shams. Spending some time strolling through the town is worthwhile because it has a falaj system for numerous orchards, date palms, and veggies. Then carry on your journey to Al Hamra, an old town.
