Thirty-six kilometers northwest of Shiraz lies one of the most ancient villages in Iran. Qalat is a village situated amidst an array of natural oddities. These include springs with reviving waters, cascades streaming in dense forests and mountains in the shape of mythological giants. The locals who speak an ancient dialect of Persian live on farming, animal husbandry and handicrafts. The village is built on a foothill and boasts an extraordinary architecture with peculiar high vaults and beautiful mud and brick houses. Ruins of a church dating back to the first world war, an ancient fort and a mill are the other attractions of the village. The village has a festive ambiance around it specially during the harvest season when they wear traditional clothes and sing.
