The buildings are built of mud bricks covered with straw and mud. Very narrow streets with interesting shops selling carpets and tiles. Very easy to get lost so make sure you check where you are.

I truly loved this city. It's one of the best to visit if you are interested in Iranian architecture. My favorite scene was clay walls and the flower pots and jugs that were used to decorate the houses. I do advice that you take your camera and take as many pictures as you can!

And it was very interesting to be in this old town not only for sightseeing, but LOOKING FOR something. This gaming together with the labyrinth of the multi secular town and its rising desert atmosphere made the stay unforgettable. In full and plain summer, this would have been a pain. But now in April, it is the spice without the... More

Yazd was the city we preferred: great atmosphere in the old town, lovely people (as everywhere in Iran!): we met Zoroastrians who talked happily about their faith. Two happy memories : Zurkaneh demonstrations, and warm bread, direct from the oven, delicious!
