If you are interested in castles, you will enjoy many in Oman. One of the most beautiful of them is called Jabrín (Jabreen) and you will find it in a semi-desert landscape south of the city of Bahla. As it lies on the circuits of travel agencies, there are more tourists than in other places in Oman.

General view of Jabrin Castle

The castle is located just off the highway 15. Most visitors come here from the town of Bahla, where there is also an interesting fortress. There is a huge parking lot, but who can try to park near the trees near the castle.

The castles lie alone on the semi-desert plains. Around it, thanks to irrigation, an oasis of date palms begins to flourish
