They are located at the southern side of the defensive system established at the end of the 19th century and start of the 20th century to protect the 'rawdat', a valley where precious rainwater is collected when it flows down from hifger ground. In Arabic "Barzan means high place".

3rd excursion with SALEH
BeeKeepOnTheMove, 18-06-2022
An excursion very Pleasant crossing the country, and in a relax mood because we went with the most complacent and nice guide of all - SALEH -.. it’s the 3rd excursion we are making with him …. We had a great day!!!
A great way to see the North of Qatar

We were picked up on time as arranged in a lovely cool air conditioned vehicle making the trip very comfortable. We particularly liked that Saleh was from Qatar wearing traditional clothes giving a real authenticity to the tour.

We feel we have now visited all the best sites and given good knowledge of each area. It was great to see the new developments such as the football stadiums and the old city and fishing port and market plus purple island which is literally a swamp in a dessert!! ending up at the El Zubarah Fort.

The tour was very relaxed and we were given plenty of time to explore the sites. If you are visiting during the World Cup this would be a great trip to do in between the matches.

Saleh took us to see the northern part of the peninsula. We went to see Al Khor and Al Zubara, the port, the oldest fish market, the ruins of Al Jumayl and the beach. It's been a great Saturday thanks to Saleh
