  • These public baths fed by a hot spring (very hot) are free. Men and women are separated. It is an incredible organization. They are great arrow. in the HomeStretch, he must roll up to the mosque. Baths are nearby. You really love heat for dipping is, but it's worth the look. No tourist.

  • The Fort in Al Hazm especially we liked, because it is very vast and labyrinthine outright with its many passageways (and secret passageways). It's very nicely renovated and the different rooms are lovingly equipped. Many other forts which were built later, with its massive wooden doors, the distinctive towers of Cannon and many defense devices it was a role model. We have visited the Fort on Friday and had to rush us because it already closes at 11: 00 that day – like we would have spent more than just the available standing an hour here.

  • Al Hazm Castle is located on the outskirts of Al Rustaq and is one of the most famous castles of the Sultanate. Very nice big wooden door decorated with an intricate writing. Recently restored with a beautiful collection of objects and weapons.

  • Very nice castle. Many cool rooms. Well kept. Included in the price was an audio guide to make the walk more interesting. Nice restrooms. 1/2 RO. 30-60 minutes needed for a good explore. Staff was very friendly and gave us dates and coffee.
  • A great place to visit, very historical
  • It's says alot about Oman history, the castle has a lot of details and storyline behind the way it was built
  • By far the most interesting fort I've seen. Friendly and welcoming staff. Will definitely visit again.
  • Wonderful castle
