  • Address: Fujairah, United Arab Emirates
Fujairah Fort, the oldest fort in the United Arab Emirates dating back to 1670, was built from mud, wood, gravel and gypsum on a rocky outcrop where it protected the old village and valuable date palm oasis from invaders. The historic structure was damaged by an attack by the British in the early 20th century, but it was recently resorted to its former state.

Surrounding the Fujairah Fort, the Fujairah Department of Archaeology and Heritage has set up a Heritage Village, where visitors can stroll through resorted historic houses filled with exhibits on the traditional lifestyle of Fujairah’s ancient residents.

Practical Info

The recently restored Fujairah Fort is free to the public. Plan you visit for evening to see the setting sun bring out the orange and red hues in the brick and bud buildings.
