Episode

Alfred discovers the north of Iran; enter the city that once was the core of the entire Silk Road in Persia: Tabriz. He heads into the bazaar, the finest in the country, and wanders through its 36km of alleyways and stalls.

Our guide meets Dr Faribouz Esmaeli at the heart of this architectural gem – he was in charge of its restoration. Tabriz is also the center of the ancient Armenian community in Iran. After visiting St Mary’s Church, he sits down to share a meal with archeologist Karen Sarkisian and schoolteacher Narineh Sayadian to discuss Armenians’ place in the Iranian society.
