In focus: Imam Square, Iran

“Isfahan’s main square is among the world’s largest, and is something really special. Surrounded by archways leading to bazaars, mosques and palaces on all sides, it's grandiose and the local Iranians hang out in the square on park benches. It’s vibrant and full of life, and the people so friendly and hospitable. It’s amazing being in a place of such politics and culture in the midst of a vast landscape of mountains and deserts. A visit here completely takes you out of yourself and exposes you to something completely new. We sample the amazing local hospitality by eating at a local restaurants and have the opportunity to sample a homemade meal inside one of the cave-dwellings in Maymand.”
