Nestled in the Iranian highlands, lies the cradle of the Persian Empire, one of the greatest civilisations of Antiquity. Skilled builders, the Persians built the city of Persepolis, an architectural masterpiece. Until now, the site was mainly known for its imposing royal terrace, used by Persian Kings a few months during the year. Recent discoveries are nevertheless shedding new light on Persepolis. It appears to have been one of the most opulent cities of the ancient world, an Eden in the Persian mountains.
