The modern settlement of Al Ula was set up in the 20th century, in order to provide homes for people who previously lived in the dried mud historic village. The last family left the old city in 1983. The built area consists of an urban centre and other parts which spread over a larger area to the south and north of it. The winter park, a few km north of the modern city centre, is the starting point of the tours to the area.
