The "Rolls Royce" of fortifications of its time, the Nizwa fort was central to Oman's security for centuries. With a dark and narrow, ziggy-zaggy staircase, unexpected drop pits, followed immediately by ceiling slits from which scalding date syrup could be poured on invaders, one has to salute the architects of this fort. The photo opportunities are fabulous too, with bright blue skies contrasting the ochre of the well-maintained fort, softened by the green oases of date palms below the rugged mountains ... a stunning few hours, albeit HOT, stepping back in time, from their living rooms to the parapets!
