Portuguese Fort - Bahrain

Michael Skorulski (Toronto, Canada) on 25 September 2008 in Architecture and Portfolio.

The fort dates from the 1500s when the Portuguese military occupied Bahrain which is 25 km. off the coast of Saudi Arabia. The fortress sits on top of an earthen mound which archeologists have excavated to find ruins and artifacts dating from as early as 3,000 BC when the island was the center of the Dilmon civilization which traded with Mesopotamia.
