Time Out Says

A simple wall and watchtower rather than the impenetrable defence it used to be, the iconic location (it features on the ten Rial note, incidentally) reopened to the public in 2018. It is stunning to look at from afar, but when given the chance to enter you are able to enjoy stunning views down to the corniche and see an ancient canon. There are centuries of history to consider in the gorgeous building atop the craggy cliffs and it is as impressive at night as it is day.
