Firuzabad is a historic ancient city located in Fars province. The city was destroyed twice in history, the first time by Alexander of Macedonia and the second time during the Arab invasion of the seventh century. It was revived by Ardashir before the Arab invasion and became the glorious capital of the Sassanid empire lasting about 400 years.

Firuzabad is famous for its precise circular plan as the first city with this feature in ancient times. The main reason for this circular plan was to protect the city against the enemy's attack. It used to be surrounded by a mud wall and ditch.

On Firuzabad city tour, you will have an enjoyable trip visiting the highlights of Firuzabad which are the Palace of Ardeshir Babakan and Ghal’eh Dokhtar or the Maiden’s Castle and walking in Khorgheh valley and Gur traditional village.
