Ad Diriyah

Known for its traditional mud-brick architecture, Ad Diriyah is home to revitalized Al Bujairi, a pedestrianized maze of winding alleyways with cafes and craft shops. Cultural sites include Diriyah Museum, a former palace with exhibits on Saudi history, and the restored Al-Zawihra Mosque. A river lined with date palms runs through Wadi Hanifah valley, a popular spot for waterside picnics, strolling, and cycling.
