The oldest building in young Abu Dhabi is the Al Hosn Palace,
known colloquially as the White Fort. It was constructed in 1793 as
the official residence of the former ruling family, and was
extensively renovated in 1983. Today it houses the Cultural
Foundation, featuring a museum of traditional artefacts and
historical photographs. The Palace is renowned for the magnificent
tile work over its main gate.
