Shapouri Mansion is one of the most beautiful historical buildings of Shiraz that dates back to 1930s in early Pahlavi dynasty. It has been built by one of the famous architects of Shiraz, Mr. Mohandesi in two floors. Either of these floors has its own particular decoration such as Iranian-European paintings, stucco, etc.
What makes visiting this building especial is, the architect had hired several local artists in order to design the construction in Iranian method. There is also a beautiful story for its garden that has been amazing done by Shirazi citizens as they are known for designing gardens.
It is very exquisite, especially when in spring when all orange trees are blooming you can walk randomly around inside the garden. Relatively recently its garden has turned to be a cafe & restaurant that serves several local juices as well as typical cuisines.
People are of the opinion that, it’s a hidden gem of Shiraz in old district that has this potential to bring more customers from all over the world. As travel consultants we would highly recommend to take a look at this garden while you stay in city center in order to have a decent feeling of Shiraz in the early evening when it is lit up.
