Enlargement Information

The Fortress Enlargement represents the first expansion built in 1529 under the governorship of Badr el-Din (nephew of the vizir of Hormuz). This construction adapted the earlier building to modern artillery defense, mostly by the addition of a new surrounding enclosure and boulevards as well as enlargement of the moat.
