TOP SIGHTSEEINGS TO VISIT
Part of the World Heritage-listed ancient walled city, Maiden Tower remains one of nation's most distinctive emblems. Built on a solid rock foundation in the 12th century, the majestic 29.5 m (96 ft) tower seamlessly blends Persian, Arabic, and Ottoman architectural influences into one. Its massive foundations plunge 15 m (49.2 ft) below ground and may date back as far as the 4th century CE. Explore the mysterious eight-story structure, which houses a water well, an observation deck at the top, and a museum containing many relics and stories of the city's evolution throughout history. The tower also contains shops and cafes.
The Old City is the place where you can touch history and taste the most delicious dishes this city has to offer. I always find something new to discover.
