Oman // Muscat //


Sweeping around a beautiful seafront corniche, MUTTRAH (also spelled Mutrah or Matrah) is the city’s old commercial centre, and still far and away the most interesting part of the city. The area retains much of its mercantile importance thanks to the presence here of the large Sultan Qaboos Docks, the city’s Fish Market and the enduringly popular Muttrah Souk, as well as reminders of its past in the form of the old Portuguese Muttrah Fort.
