It is difficult to imagine that many of the buildings in small villages as well as the city of Sana'a are over 1000 years old. Built to defy the harsh climate and utilizing traditional techniques of adobe, many buildings rise over 6 storeys high. The streets of Yemen are a living museum of architecture and UNESCO has designated many areas as World Heritage Sites. But what is behind the mud walls is just as stunning: beautiful stained glass windows and intricate plaster carvings adorn many rooms, making Yemeni houses both beautiful and functional.
