Attraction details
Reviewed May 8, 2013

the built environment in Riyadh often disappoints, But not here. Great modern architecture, painstaking restoration of mudbrick palaces, shaded, useable open spaces that function summer and winter. The whole complex is a masterclass in the creation of liveable spaces in a brutal climate. And possibly some of the best car parking in the world (limited, tree lined, shaded, tented, hedged, with a short path to each individual space) is just a bonus.

Incredible to imagine today, built in the 1930s outside and north of the original historical area of Riyadh, next to the National Museum.

Built as royal residence. The castle itself was closed when I was there, but the area is nice to have a little walk through with a nice little palm garden.
