The former capital city of Oman, Nizwa continues to bustle with the commercial significance of an ancient trading center. Indeed it was to defend the city’s position on a major trade route that Nizwa Fort, a castle marked by an imposing cylindrical tower, was built in the 17th century. Learn more about the city’s past at historic sites like Bahla, Jabreen, and the ruins of Tanur. Past rugged highland routes, Jebel Akhdar and Jebel Shams make for truly spectacular views of the Al Hadar mountain range. Serenade the nature lover in you with a ramble through palm groves in the oasis and the lush environs of Falaj Daris Park. Spend a vibrant afternoon at the high-walled Nizwa Souk that pulsates with the sights, sounds, and aromas of local produce like hand-woven fabrics, pottery, and livestock but is best known for the Omani silver khanjar or traditional curved dagger.
