Known as the gateway to the desert, Agadez, on the southern edge of the Sahara desert, developed in the 15<span>th</span>&nbsp;and 16<span>th</span>&nbsp;centuries when the Sultanate of A&iuml;r was established&nbsp; and Touareg tribes were sedentarized in the city, respecting the boundaries of old encampments, which gave rise to a street pattern still in place today. The historic centre of the city, an important crossroads of the caravan trade, is divided into 11 quarters with irregular shapes. They contain numerous earthen dwellings and a well-preserved group of palatial and religious buildings including a 27m high&nbsp; minaret made entirely of mud brick, the highest such structure in the world.&nbsp; The site is marked by ancestral cultural, commercial and handicraft traditions still practiced today and presents exceptional and sophisticated examples of earthen architecture.
