Abu Dhabi will open its oldest standing structure in February to visitors for a tour, a rarity since preservation efforts began on Qasr al-Hosn, a 250-year-old fortress.Qasr al-Hosn was the first permanent structure built in the United Arab Emirates capital of Abu Dhabi and dates back only to the second half of the 18th century. The emirate will open the fort for its 10-day annual commemoration, the Qasr al-Hosn Festival, from Feb. 20 to March 1 .Abu Dhabi's Tourism Ministry hosts the event each year, and last year's festival attracted thousands of visitors, according to a press release announcing the 2014 lineup.
