登録基準:(iv),(v),(vi)
Situated in a mountain valley at an altitude of 2,200 m, Sana&rsquo;a has been inhabited for more than 2,500 years. In the 7th and 8th centuries the city became a major centre for the propagation of Islam. This religious and political heritage can be seen in the 103 mosques, 14 <em>hammams</em> and over 6,000 houses, all built before the 11th century. Sana&rsquo;a&rsquo;s many-storeyed tower-houses built of rammed earth (<em>pis&eacute;</em>) add to the beauty of the site.
