Abyaneh Village, Natanz

(4.1/5 based on 120+ 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.

  • Exciting to visit this little town in the mountains at an altitude of 2,200 with still much higher peaks around-in the village is home to some 300 people, we have seen only a dozen lost in the maze of narrow alleys-curious fact, before reaching the town a roadblock where you have to pay an entrance fee-the place is really particular, first of all for the red ochre of all buildings (made of Earth and straw mattress) given by the education the rocks containing iron in abundance, then from the faces of elderly people that make you go back in time-in a mosque there are some screws that have about 500 years with a 25 cm diameter (see attached photo)

  • At the end of a dead-end road, lies the beautiful village of Abyaneh, while Red Earth. Women with their colorful veils are photographed, some ask for a ticket. Can be found in all the streets, dried fruits (apples, yellow prunes,...) to buy. Worth the drive.
