Saudi Arabia : Masmak Fortress


It is a clay and mud-brick fort, with four watchtowers and thick walls. It was founded on stone blocks, in the old quarters. This building played a major part in the kingdom's history, as it was here that the recapture of Riyadh, led by Ibn Saud, occurred on 14 January 1902.
