Everyone usually visits the Imam Mosque on Naqsh-e Jahan Square, the historic bridges, Sabzeh Square and the huge bazaar. However, you will also find the beautiful Hasht Behesht Park, the royal palaces and the old Armenian Quarter with its preserved churches.

Vank Cathedral

The Armenian Quarter is the furthest from the center of all major monuments. It is located almost at the southern end of the city. Its center is the interesting cathedral Vank. It is famous for its beautiful frescoes, so if it is open you will definitely not hesitate to enter
