If you want to discover the glorious past of ancient Persia up close, a visit to Kashan is ideal for a fascinating travel experience. The old town still has all the characteristics of the desert architecture, here with a connotation of great splendor. In fact, the most beautiful and sumptuous private residences have been restored in Kashan. The style is mainly Qajar, with mirrors, colored glasses, extraordinary stuccoes, internal courtyards and domes embellished with paintings and impeccable geometries. All built with that ancestral architectural wisdom which, respecting the environment, and with the use of contemporary materials, allows you to live in cool and breezy homes even in the hot summer climate of the desert.
