Sar-Yazd Fortress, Yazd
(4.7/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
Learn about the first bank in the world with a visit to Sar-Yazd Fortress. See the marvelous citadel built from mud bricks, which dates back to the third century CE, and which served as a place where the people of the city would keep their treasures and grains. It represented the safest location because of its high walls and towers, and a moat that prevented intruders from attacking and looting. Explore the three floors with over 450 rooms, and ask your guide tell you more about the history and customs of the people who lived here.
