Al-Hazm features what may be the most beautiful building in the country, the fort of Sultan bin Seif al Ya'ariba (the sultan is buried there). Inside are dungeons, secret tunnels, towers and a perch over the gateway from which soldiers would pour boiling date juice on invaders. Built in 1708, it has been extensively restored and is well worth a day's excursion. 80 mi/130 km west of Masqat.
