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.
