Silversea Luxury Cruises A SUR

SUR

Once a central trading port for East Africa and India, Sur was also renowned for the wonderful wooden ships it produced. Having lost some of its prestige when the French completed the Suez Canal in the 19th century, and struck by a cyclone in 2007, the city has nevertheless retained its scenic dunes and crystal waters.

Sur’s most recognisable monument today is the Ras al Haad castle, a gem of Islamic architecture built in the 13th century to protect locals from Christian attacks, and which now serves as a regional political centre. While in town, science aficionados will be lured by the impressive Ras Al Jinz Scientific & Visitor Center, offering modern facilities and apps to discover the local wonders of fauna and flora. Alternatively, for an in-depth discovery of the city’s history, the maritime museum is an excellent choice.

Excursiones en SUR

Highlights of Sur

Sur city in Oman is an ideal location in the northeast Province of Sharqiya and is a seafaring town, a fishing village and a trading port all in one. Sur has been an important locus of waterfront and trade since the 19th century. The port was the fulcrum of commercial and cultural connections between Oman, East Africa and India.

Depart the jetty and arrive at Sur Souq, a massive market that stretches over several city blocks, offering vegetables, spices that are roasted and custom-blened before you, tailors, gold shops and of course a major fish market. Watch the fishermen bring in their early morning catch to the shores or take a walk in the seaside market laden with fish. Get a sense of local life here as residents wander in and out of the other shops and taking tea along these narrow streets.

Proceed from the fish market to the rest of the Sur Souq traditional market, followed by a visit of Sineslah Fort, a major local landmark that offers splendid views of the city. The Fort is comprised of a large, square fortification around a sizeable outdoor courtyard. See the cannons and utensils on display that were in use when the fort was originally open hundreds of years ago.

Continue to the Dhow building yard where to see skilled craftsmen building traditional Dhows (fishing boats). Learn about the building process and the history of these impressive vessels. Return back to Sur jetty after your visit.
