A Portuguese lookout post in Mutrah
Time Out Says
The forts and palaces rightly take the plaudits and have the wider appeal, but this clifftop tower in Mutrah has its own charm. Veer off from the cornice and climb around 100 steps up the rugged cliff face and the restored Portuguese look-out post has suberb views of Mytrah and back to the Riyam Monument. It is all too easy to imagine why in centuries gone by this was such a crucial location outside of the forts as the vantage point really can see it all. There are even a few canons up there.
