This site is closed off if the water rises to a level that makes the site unvisitable. The visitors center is educational but not worth a visit is the pearl diving section is closed.
Qatar's first and only Unesco World Heritage site appears in the desert as if out of nowhere, built in 1938, this UNESCO World Heritage site is one of the most extensive and best preserved examples of an 18th–19th century settlement in the region, am really proud that al-zubara…
I never knew anything about Qatar's rich history in the early Pearl trade, and this site and area are such a tremendous resource and find that tells the story so well. Thank you UNESCO! The fort and village and history are do insightful in the telling. Plan on a long drive.
Very well maintained and presented. The facilities are archeological site nearby are very interesting to visit and explore. Although built in 1938, there are exhibits highlighting history of the location to include the fishing village ruins nearby.
If you're looking at a comprehensive tour of Qatar, it is worth the long drive to the fort. The presentations and literature on site give a general idea of life in olden Qatar in the area.
