 Culture & Heritage
 

The Sultanate of Oman is a country blessed with a rich heritage. Nowhere is this more evident than in its wealth of forts and castles, many of them set against backdrops of great natural splendour.

Forts and Castles are Oman's most striking cultural landmarks and, together with its towers and city walls, they have historically been used as defensive bastions or look-out points. Forts were often the seats of administrative and judicial authority. There are over 500 forts, castles and towers in Oman which has a coastline of 1,700 kms, so they were needed to protect it from potential invaders.
