Mas­mak Fortress

Riyadh Business Travel Guide - - BUSINESS TRAVEL -

“It’s a scene out of the movies: a big fortress rep­re­sent­ing an em­pire. Sur­rounded by sand, this squat for­ti­fi­ca­tion was built around 1865... The roofs are cov­ered with painted palm-trees; taramic and ethel wood and ex­ude an old-world charm that evokes an Ara­bian paint­ing. In­side, the in­for­ma­tion pan­els and short, chest-thump­ing films on the storm­ing of the fortress and the ‘re­u­ni­fi­ca­tion’ of Saudi Ara­bia are rev­er­en­tial to­wards the Al Sauds but worth watch­ing nonethe­less.”
