The city of Isfahan or Esfahan in Iran is situated to the south of Teheran and contains many examples of Islamic architecture dating from the the 11th to the 19th centuries. The guide describes an itinerary through its mosques, temples, minarets, palaces and bridges.
The site can be visited from either a scientific or a tourist point of view. The scientific guide includes an introduction to the fundamental concepts behind Islamic and Iranian architecture and a detailed bibliography. The second part of the guide is dedicated to exploring the city by taxi, thanks to a useful map provided by the web master.
Moreover the site, prepared by an English University organization, contains a great deal of other historical, literary and travel information on Iran.
