Off-the-beaten-track in Abyaneh village

There’s really no good reason to visit Abyaneh, unless you want to wander up peaceful village streets, past charming ochre houses, friendly locals in beautiful traditional dress and a 14th century mosque, up to the town’s lookout, set amidst picturesque castle remains and giving views of a beautiful valley and the rugged Mount Karkas. Abyaneh is simply a timeless, idyllic spot, one of Iran’s most serene, whose architectural and cultural significance has rightly been recognised by UNESCO.
