Recognised and celebrated for the richness of its culture, it is safe to say that the Arab world’s architectural compositions are some of the world’s most exquisite and refined to say the least. Call us biased, but from the eminent Golden Age up until now, the region’s splendid taste in style and great technique in construction is quite unmatched.
Needless to say, there’s no better way of getting a real taste of the region than exploring its architectural gems. And with summer well under way, there’s no better time than now to start looking at some vacation options. For that reason, we’ve rounded up 5 breathtaking homes for you to visit.
