The Al Ula heritage village is centered around the Mousa Bin Nusair fort and is adjacent to the Al Ula oasis. It consists of dried mud houses, built next to each other and criss-crossed by a maze of narrow alleys. Here is where the local population lived for eight centuries, before they moved to the new settlement in the 20th century. The 6th century Mousa Bin Nusair fort is built on a rock outcrop and overlooks the area. The heritage village is currently being restored and is managed by the Royal Commission for Al Ula.
