02Masmak Fortress in Riyadh

Masmak Fortress is one of the most historically important sites in Saudi Arabia. Believed to have played a vital role in the recapturing of Riyadh City in 1902 by an exiled Saudi royal, Ibn Saud, the fortress went on to become the base where various realms united to form what is now the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The fortress is now a museum that delivers a sneak peek into the history of Riyadh and the Saudi Kingdom. The fort's architecture is a sight to behold, and the well-preserved artifacts inside the building tell the story of Ibn Saud’s conquests and quest to unite the region.
