Time Travel Al Zubarah Archaeological Site World Heritage Plaque  Qatar
Time Travel
Still curious to learn more about Qatar’s fascinating past? Drive an hour from Doha to explore Al Zubarah Fort, a restored 1930s-era limestone structure on a remote stretch of the country’s northwest coast. Together with the excavated remains of a deserted 19th-century village that was once an important hub of the region’s pearling trade, the 150-acre area has been named a UNESCO World Heritage site. Visitors are free to explore the fort by themselves, taking in what’s left of the abandoned town. It provides a rare look back at a once-glorious chapter in Qatar’s history.
