At the end of the twenty-kilometer long valley lies between the mountains very picturesque town Abyaneh. It is famous not only for its beautiful location and red houses, but also for different culture and local customs. Most local houses have beautiful wood carved doors. It is advisable to be here in the morning before numerous souvenirs stalls open. Before tourists from more distant towns such as Esfahan arrive, it looks here more truthful. At the entrance to the town you can obtain a map with marked most interesting buildings in the town.
