This special Destinations episode takes you from the magical coasts of Scotland to the most sophisticated palaces of Iran.
Scotland, a land of haunted castles and fantastic animals. A land of legends, which inspired J. K. Rowling... These windswept coasts are dotted by castles that link the earth and the skies. A mysterious mist engulfs the landscapes...
With its colored domes and dazzling cupolas, Isfahan rises from the desert. At the center of Iran, it is a city of monumental palaces and many splendors. It owes its glory to Abbas the Great, Shah of Persia from 1588 to 1629. An enlightened despot, he led his country into a golden age and made Isfahan its grandiose yet refined capital, the pride of Iran in the eyes of the world.
