2.2/5 based on 25 reviews on the web
Admire the traditional Qatari design of Barzan Tower, built in the late 19th century as a defense against Ottoman soldiers. The 16 m (52.49 ft) high structure originally featured coral and limestone walls measuring 1 m (3.3 ft) thick, and a four-layer roof consisting of wooden poles, bamboo strips, mangrove branches, and compressed mud. Tour the recently restored complex, which includes receiving rooms, a mosque, and a madrasa, while the surrounding area supports an interesting variety of wildlife.
