Thank you!
Isfahan may also be well named the city of Iranian handicrafts and traditional arts. Carpet weaving, engraving, miniature painting, inlaid work, tile making, brocade, calico and enamelwork are among the most important forms of art in Isfahan. Due to its high potentials and arts, it can be said that ISFAHAN is a Museum Where People Live in.
The Bazaar of Isfahan, the heritage of the Saljuqid and Safavid era, is one of the oldest and largest bazaars of the Middle East. It stretches between Imam Square and the Jameh Mosque several kilometers away. Like most Iranian bazaars, Bazaar-e Bozorg is loosely divided into several interconnected corridors, each specializing in a particular trade or product, with carpet dealers, goldsmiths, samovar-makers, shoe makers, dyers, all having their own quarters.
You can also find several mosques, tea shops, bathhouses, and even gardens. Small apertures in the vaulted roof let in sufficient light yet kept out the intense heat of summer and retained warmth in winter.

    Gracias Pilar, GRACIAS. Sure they have azulejos... and...long BEFORE Portugal). 'Azulejo is a form of Portuguese or Spanish painted, tin-glazed, ceramic tilework. It has become a typical aspect of Portuguese culture, having been produced without interruption for five centuries.The art was introduced to Portugal, by the Moors and the craft is still in use in the Arab world in two main traditions the 'Egyptian Zalij' and the 'Moroccan Zalij' the latter being the most famous'.BUT .....The Art seems to have originated among the Assyrians in the times before Christ. From them it apparently was learned by the Persians, who taught it to the Arabs, who brought it to Europe through their invention of Iberia....
