Persepolis - Iran

Founded by Darius I in 518 B.C., Persepolis was the capital of the Achaemenid Empire. 
It was built on an immense half-artificial, half-natural terrace, where the king of kings created an impressive palace complex inspired by Mesopotamian models. 
The importance and quality of the monumental ruins make it a unique archaeological site.
