Al Mirani Fort
An imposing 400-years-old structure
Time Out Says
A landmark enjoyed for looking at, rather than exploring, due to the fact that you can see it, but not enter. But glancing up at its hilltop location from all around Muscat gives fine views of the historic Portuguese fort that has stood here for more than 400 years. It holds a special place in Omani history as it is the site of a famous military victory, which eventually led to the Portuguese soldiers being ousted from Muscat. The equally impressive walls of the Al Jalali Fort sit across the bay.
