Wander through the tunnels and streets while escaping the heat of the desert. Behind each doorway is a shop offering tapestries and textiles, timeless Persian tiles glazed in natural colours and designs. The architecture reflects the beauty of light and the ingenuity of determined hands skilled with mud and straw. A climb to the rooftop is the most enjoyable way to drink a hibiscus or tea.
