The beauty of Persia takes your mind without you realizing it and when you realize it, its image has already crept and fixed itself in that personal gallery of places that each of us jealously preserves in the depths of our souls.
Iran is also known for its beautiful gardens with lush greenery. One of the oldest existing in Iran today is the Fin garden, located in the city of Kashan. In keeping with many of the Persian gardens built towards the end of the sixteenth century, the garden of Fin will surprise you with its water features. These are fed by a spring located on the hill behind the garden, and the water pressure is such that it can feed a large number of pools and fountains without the need for mechanical pumps. The garden also contains numerous cypresses and combines architectural features from the Safavid dynasty, the Zand dynasty, and the Qajar dynasty.
Just a little more than an hour’s drive south of Kashan is the historic village of Abyaneh, off the main road. Because the houses were built entirely from red bricks and mud, it is also called the “red village”.
Natanz is a village located in the Iranian desert not far from the great western mountain range and is a destination rarely included in tourist itineraries in Iran, but no less interesting.
