Tourism in Abha is one of the most important summer resorts and tourist cities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
The city of Abha is considered one of the most important summer resorts and tourist cities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, because of its mild climate and its great height above sea level.
The Ottoman Citadel of Shamsan is one of the oldest and most important historical landmarks of Abha that remain so far, but unfortunately it does not receive sufficient care. This led to the extinction of its features somewhat.
The Ottoman castle of Shamsan has great historical importance, as it was used as a military barracks for several periods in the history of the Kingdom.
Shamsan Ottoman Castle is a rectangular building, consisting of a main entrance, and 3 towers, located on the western side overlooking the city. Inside the castle there is a rectangular courtyard to which all rooms and facilities open. The walls of the castle still exist today, and the main doors are closed.
It is located in the village of Al-Soudah, northwest of the city of Abha, and there is Mount Tahlal, which reaches the highest point in the Arabian Peninsula, with a height of 3207 m above sea level. Smells good.
As for “Al-Sawdah” Mountain, the highest mountain peak in Abha and in the Kingdom as a whole, its height reaches more than 3,000 km above sea level, and it is one of the most famous tourist places in Abha and in all of Saudi Arabia.
Dark Aar trees cover all parts of the mountain, along with clouds that appear on the horizon most of the time.
