  • Not far from Sana'a. Waiting 15 km, you will find there, in the fertile valley of the green back. The tall rock and fantastic, standing stone, the Mansion House/seven floors in architectural composition is incompatible with the nature and form of granitic rock which stands upon the Palace, up it goes. Is one of the places that I recognize. Adopted by the Kings of ancient Yemen by tourist in shrubs and lobbies of the mansion a broad corridor paved with stones have longstanding, gives you a sense of place and preparedness uniqueness. Different stories about the history of its construction, but everyone agrees the elegance of the Palace and exceptional location on the high rock. From the Windows of his break and "released" overlooking the walfrsk grapes, quince and giant trees. If you visit all the highlights history and tourism in the world and never visited stone house, you will not complete your pleasure. Stone House landmark rework our partnership agreement so. You may not be able to visit him in the meantime, Yemen's conditions, and all you have to do, is to put it in mind, as a tourist destination. Button stone house to confirm that one visit is not enough to hope all these towering extravaganza.
