Get a glimpse into military history at Al-Zubara Fort, part of a World Heritage Site that includes a Gulf merchant town. Within the town's ruins, the fort has stood since 1938 when Sheikh Abdullah bin Jassim Al Thani built it as a Coast Guard station. Now a museum, the space shows the architectural techniques of Qatar alongside artworks and archeological exhibits. Visit the still impenetrable fort and take shelter from the sun under the roof where soldiers would gather to patrol the coast. Take a peek into their lives by exploring the fort on your own.

ドーハからタクシーで一時間半でこのフォートに着,２０分待ってもらいドーハに戻ってもらいました(合計250リアル) 世界遺産だから見学に行ったのですが、コスパは悪いです。 小さなフォートに小さな博物館があり, さらにフォートの内部もがらんとしてます。 世界遺産が好きで, 世界遺産に行くことだけに価値を見出せる人にはお勧めです!Went to visit world heritage from Doha arrived in a taxi this Fort in 1 hour and a half, have been waiting for 20 minutes, I had back in Doha (total 250 real) from bad cospa. Small Fort has a small museum, even I'm empty inside the Fort. Is recommended to people who find the value to just go to world heritage sites, World Heritage sites is like!View original
