Masafi Fort

Masafi Fort is located in the masafi town, in the Al Hajar mountain range near Fujairah border with Ras Al Khaimah, which goes through Masafi village.

Place : Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates
Period: 19th Century

It is considered that the fort was built during the 19th century in order to protect the oasis which connects the eastern and western sides of the Al Hajar mountains and the fort was restored during 2012.

The fort has underground water systems which reflect the ancient techniques.

Access to the fort is free  to access during daytime, although you will have to sign the guestbook of the guard. You have to follow the unpaved road from the signboard which will take you to the Masafi fort. 

I could not find additional information about the masafi fort. If i get to know I will be updating the details in the same post.  

Friday Market 

The Friday market is located in the west side of Masafi , the market is open week-round and it is a popular tourist destination, where you can buy toys, plants, carpets, pots, fruit and vegetables. You will also find some camping spots or places to have family time having lunch and kids play.
