Sana’a is one of the oldest cities in the world and Yemen’s largest city. According to popular legend, it was founded by Shem, the son of Noah. Surrounded by ancient clay walls which stand 9–14 metres high, the old city contains more than 100 mosques, 12 hammams and 6,500 houses. Its multi-storey buildings decorated with geometric patterns get your attention right away, and during the night – it just might be one of the most romantic places in the world.
