From Mosques to Palaces, Seeing the Sights in the Middle East



Awash in history and stunning architecture, there is so much to see in the Middle East. Let’s go. We’re taking the trip of a lifetime in this reel. Among our destinations: a kaleidoscopic mosque in Iran that comes to life with vibrant color when the sun shines through its stained glass windows; in Yemen, a palace that is literally perched atop a rock (and not as old as you might think); and a resilient hotel in Lebanon that has survived war and economic depression since it opened in 1874.
