Book flights to Sadah

Saada is a historic city located in the northwestern highlands of Yemen, sitting at an elevation of about 1,800 metres. Due to its mountainous location, Saada experiences a cooler climate than much of Yemen, making it a good choice to visit in the hotter months, from April to October. The city is significant for its role in Yemeni history, having been the capital of the Zaydi Imamate for centuries. Visitors interested in history can explore the Great Mosque of Saada, considered one of the most important religious structures in Yemen, and the Old City, with its traditional architecture. Saada is also a centre for Zaydi Islam, a branch of Shia Islam. While the ongoing conflict in Yemen has unfortunately impacted Saada, the city is still working to rebuild and revitalise itself. It offers a window into a unique aspect of Yemeni culture and history.
