Oman: Rustaq Fort
Oman is the land of medieval forts (who would have thought?). There are over 1000 forts scattered all around the country, most restored to stunning “brand new” condition. The Rustaq fort was another perfect example. The town of Ar Rustaq actually used to be Oman’s capital. Its imposing fort is a spectacular fortified structure with mountains in the background and date palm oasis all around it. It has four massive towers and super thick defensive walls (at no place less than 3 meters/10 feet thick). UNESCO World Heritage site.
