Qannah in Oman
This is one of the oldest villages located at Khawr Sham in Wilayt Khasab in the Musandam Governorate. The stone houses appear to be part of the cliff itself, so it is hard for the visitor to make them out at first. This was the primary purpose for its establishment, since these houses are the village’s first line of defence. Al Qannah is accessible from the sea by boats that cross the region, and is a spectacular sight as it reflects the glow of the sun’s rays. Most of the villagers depend on fishing for their livelihood.
