The old city of Yazd, according to the UNESCO one of the oldest towns on earth, is the ideal place to get a feel for the region's rich history.

Almost everything here is made from sun-dried mud bricks, and the resulting brown skyline is dominated by the tall badgirs (windcatchers) on almost every rooftop.

Residential quarters appear almost deserted because of the high walls, which shield the houses from the narrow and labyrinthine alleys scatteres around the town.
