Abyaneh Village, Natanz

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.

  • This ancient village has long entrance of my bucket list but recently on a visit to Iran a chance to drop by 3. We came when the low season in the winter so not many tourists who are passing by. The original residents are also not a lot of hanging around. A friend said they may move to other places. A quiet atmosphere thus cool hunting photos and stroll in the old village wall paced the Red (because it is made from a mixture of clay). You as if catapulted far into the past. If you want to photograph this village from a distance there is the ancient fortress not far from the village that can be used as viewpoint. You simply walk about 20 minutes toward the Valley.

  • The village and its surroundings are very beautiful. We visited it in January. At this time, it acts as a museum. There were scarcely human, everything closed. It does seem that the village for tourists alive.

  • This, hidden among the mountains, clay city is unique. It is situated in the picturesque mountain valley. It is necessary to climb a nearby hill with remnants of the fortress and see the city. It is advisable to attend in the morning, when the sun shines. The city itself is very atmospheric, all of red clay. Locals for Entourage dress in colourful fancy clothes. Enter the city paid (around 100000 reais, $2).
