Excellent site to visit and be amazed. Two distinct towers which you can spot from the road and not miss.

There are two towers and a few small buildings in the area, you can look at them and into inside, ever to the top. If there will be some information table about towers, about some details, it will be much better.

Should be visited if you're doing a tour of the peninsula, but don't make it your only destination for the day. Interesting architecture therefore historically important in a place where most things are knocked down after a few years.

Barzan Tower is a nice piece of Qatar history, however, dont put it on your top list when visiting Qatar. Its well-maintained monument and has a great history, but nothing else in there. You can make nice pictures there but if you are in Qatar...More

Love this location. Dramatic angles, excellent light and shadow contrasts for photographers. Beautiful antique doors. When we visited, the inside was empty. Don't know if items will be placed inside after the renovation is complete. We had great exercise climbing up and down the many...More

Few months ago, I went for Barzan Tower, hardly struggled to get the location and find the place. A big shock to find that it was closed for renovation. Now it is more than 6 months and still the same reason.

I'm being generous when I give an average rating, because the day I went at 11 AM on a Friday it was closed. It might have been a Ramadan thing, but for something that's sold as a tourist attraction, it should have been open. Anyway,...More
