yazd Old Town

The inhabited Old Town in Yazd is famous for its narrow winding alleys with arches, the best possible protection against the summer sun, and is a delight of any trip to Iran. Getting lost in the maze of mud bricked lanes of the ancient city on an afternoon stroll can become your unforgettable image of Iran. The defining feature of the old town is the slender wind tower sitting upon almost every house. Look out for a great view of the city by climbing up onto the rooftops.
