Description

It includes the city’s first permanent structure, a coral and sea stone watchtower built to protect the settlement of Abu Dhabi established on the island in the 1760s.

This fascinating tour will be led by Mark Kyffin Head of Architecture, Department of Culture & Tourism Abu Dhabi and Gary Dicken, Head of Studio, BDP MENA, followed by Q+A.

There are up to 50 places for the tour. Tickets are free
