Visit Masmak Citadel, a 19th-century fort, known for being the place where Ibn Saud, the founder of Saudi Arabia, reconquered Riyadh in 1902. The historic fortification was built out of clay and brick in 1865, and today houses a museum, a part of the King Abdulaziz Historical Center. Take a tour of the building, restored in the 1980s, and admire a collection of traditional costumes and relics. Keep your eyes peeled for part of a spear that was thrown during the raid and remains lodged in the gate today.
