Al-Shebak Fort: It is known as the Grand House and is located in Allayt Ibra. It was built by Sheikh Ahmed bin Rabia Al-Ismaili Al-Humairi in the reign of Imam Sultan bin Saif Al-Thani Al-Yarubi. The House consists of three floors in the form of a semi-circle. The main door of the Fort is a masterpiece as it is the largest and finest door in the Province.
