Introducing Al-Hajjarah

Stunningly situated on a mountain precipice, 5km west of Manakhah, and a little higher up the mountain, is the spectacular 11th-century village of Al-Hajjarah. The Ottomans found its strategic position useful when defending the roads from the coast to

Sana‘a. Nowadays this setting and its century-old stone and whitewashed tower houses (some up to eight storeys) have caught the eye of visitors with mountain-walking in mind.
