A view of the city from the rooftop at sunset - Sana'a

Sana'a is the capital city of Yemen, known for its unique architecture, ancient history, and vibrant culture, one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, with a history dating back over 2,500 years.

The city's bustling souqs, historic mosques, and traditional Yemeni houses contribute to its rich cultural heritage.
