Abyaneh Village, Natanz
(4.1/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
Step back in time with a visit to one of Iran's oldest settlements, Abyaneh Village. Nestled in the foothills of the Karkas Mountain, the village blends into the mountainside with its reddish houses. Explore the ancient settlement by wandering along narrow, sloping pathways and gaze at crumbling mud-brick buildings. Thanks to its remote location, local traditions and cultures have been meticulously preserved here. You'll notice the Abyanaki women wearing colorful, traditional dresses and speaking the local dialect of Middle Persian. Make sure you visit the 11th-century mosque, one of the village's most impressive buildings, filled with ancient carvings. Make Abyaneh Village a part of your Natanz vacation plans using our Natanz family vacation planner.

  • Beautifully integrated into the adjacent mountain, this village is the best preserved and homogeneous we have seen during our stay. Certainly, it is very touristy, but it's very nice to stroll through these streets all roses, and stop tea at a borcanteur waiting for you in front of his courtyard.
