This famous square has 3 beautiful buildings (Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, Ali Qapu Palace and Naqsh-e Jahan Mosque) and rows of authentic, not-too-touristy shops (ranging from minakari art pieces, spices, carpets, metal crockery, "gaz" souvenirs, to food stalls).

Just so much to do! Two Mosques, a Palace, three Bazaars ... and it comes alive at night in the warmer months. Lots of craft shops as well. Spent two full days here and still didn't see all it had to offer.

The second largest square in the world, this square is full of people and activity, especially in early evening. Wonderful to see Iranians relaxing and a great time to take photos of 3 of the most important sites in Esfahan.
