Step back in time and explore the World Heritage Site of Old City, the historic district of Yemen’s capital city, known for its distinctive architectural style and marked by picturesque old tower-houses. Made out of rammed earth, all of the multiple-story houses, mosques, and bathhouses have stood for more than 1,000 years, and boast intricate carvings, detailed lacy decorations, and stained glass windows. Get lost in the lively narrow streets and verdant courtyards of the old city, fringed by partially preserved ancient walls, or roam the stalls of the bustling marketplace, which offers traditional handicrafts and aromatic spices. Put Old City on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Sanaa trip planner.
