Founded in the 8th century, shortly after the Arab-Muslim conquest, the Great Mosque of Esfahan unfolds before the eyes of its visitors a thousand years of history. Built of bricks, stones and earthenware, it is one of the most important mosques of Islamic art! Its grandeur and refinement testify to the incessant architectural creativity of Iran, always in search of novelty and distinction.
