Old door in Mirbat, Oman

Mirbat, like most of the sea towns in the province of Dhofar, South

Oman, was involved in the frankincense trade. It look over the port

tradition from al-Balid in the 17th-18th centuries and became a wellknown

port, trading also with Hadramaut. Today, almost the entire

historic city has been abandoned in favour of a new centre buildin

concrete.
