Not far from the high Omani mountains is the mighty Rustaq Castle. Like most Omani castles, it is nicely restored. Here you will find countless works and beautiful views of the surrounding oasis. It is not for nothing that it is considered one of the most beautiful castles in Oman

Parking by the castle

There is a car park right next to the castle. At first, you won't even realize how nice Rustaq Castle is over the high wall

Rustaq from outside

From the big patch you have the castle in the palm of your hand. It's a pity that when they put it all together, they didn't put electricity into the ground.

View from Rustaq Castle

Not only the castle itself, but also the views from it are worth it. In front of you is a typical Omani landscape – a huge oasis and ridges of arid sharp mountains on the horizon

Castle tour

As Rustaq is quite a large castle, it will take you a while to explore all its nooks and crannies. Maybe we were just lucky, but we didn't meet any other tourists here, so the castle was just ours

South view

To the south, the mountains rise the highest and exceed the surrounding region by more than a kilometer

View over the towers

One of the most classic views from the castle is through the defensive bastions

City View

The town of Rustaq itself is quite sprawling and occupies a vast valley between the mountains. There is nothing to see outside the castle
