To evoke Saudi Arabia is to come into contact with the sacred. Single-handedly, it crystallizes the magic and the magnificence of a culture, but especially the ancestral beliefs of a global devotion.
The largest country in the Middle East in both its size and its influence, Saudi Arabia is a holy ground that marries a modernity imbued with riches and an exciting, age-old history. From the majestic coasts of the Red Sea to the shores of the Persian Gulf, this divine right of kings expands with dignity, as if to affirm its natural splendor and its leading role in today's world.

Sometimes desert-like, sometimes effervescent, the country provides the most noble of contrasts. Its capital Riyadh is the most eloquent symbol of this. Synonymous with garden in Arabic, it reveals itself as a giant, bright oasis in the heart of the Nejd plateau, like a brilliantly successful challenge of man vs. nature.
