The Riffa Fort, also known as Sheikh Salman Bin Ahmed Al Fateh Fort, is a historic landmark built during the rule of Shaikh Salman bin Ahmed Al Fateh Al Khalifa in 1812. The fort is perched on a hill and offers a splendid view across the Hunanaiya valley. As Riffa was the center of governance in the 18th century, this fort was built with its strategic significance in mind.
The interior of the fort provides a glimpse into the royal life in the 19th century, complete with wall carvings belonging to that era.
