Attractions

  • Masmak Fort

    On January 14, 1902, Abdulaziz bin Abdul Rahman bin Faisal Al Saud and his forces took control of this fortress in the hours before dawn. Made out of clay and mud-brick, this became the base to conquer and unite the different kingdoms and provinces that make up the modern Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. It now houses a collection of historical artefacts about the event, the province, and the country.

  • Ruins of Old Diriyah

    Take a trip northwest from the capital Riyadh to find Saudi’s second UNESCO World Heritage Site (declared in 2010) sitting on the banks of the valley Hanifa. Once serving as the Saudi royal family’s home (Al Turaif Quarter) during the first Saudi dynasty between 1744 and 1818, and the first Saudi capital up to 1683 (Ghusaiba Quarter), this ancient city points to a rich historical past.

  • Iconic Kingdom Centre

    For admirers of modern architecture, visit this 41-storey skyscraper located in the heart of Riyadh’s prestigious Al-Olaya retail district. The simple, yet iconic, design was chosen to represent the capital and is topped with a curved opening with a 200-foot-long observatory bridge across an inverted catenary arch. The building stands out as one of the most prestigious developments in the region.
