Culture

Nizwa Souq scaled

Nizwa – Nizwa is a city brimming with culture and heritage. The souq is known for its silverware and pottery, but it is on Friday’s that the whole region seems to gather here for the weekly animal market. The fort with its large circular tower is visible from afar – and a good landmark to keep looking out for when exploring the old part of Nizwa just behind the souq.
