The entrance to the city is a moving path (between the natural subterranean natural boundary with its artificial environment), through which the flow of the city through it is possible and has an independent personality and identity. In the meantime, spontaneous expansion and unplanned development of cities and the lack of appropriate patterns of spatial development have weakened the shape and content of the urban sprawl in Iran, causing serious damage to the city's identity and identity. This paper aims at evaluating the quality and functional quality of urban entrances to evaluate the entrance of the city of Yazd as a tourist destination. The present study is descriptive-analytic in terms of application type. Required data was collected using library studies, field surveys, and a questionnaire tool. Thus, the statistical society of this research is made up of tourists entering Yazd. According to the statistics of Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization of Yazd, the number of tourists entering Yazd in spring of 1397 through three inputs and using the Cochran formula, 320 were selected as sample size. To analyze the data, descriptive statistical methods (frequency distribution and percentage) and inferential statistics method (T side effects test, Kruskal Wallis) have been used. The set of research criteria includes the status of city entrance regarding the quality of the passageways, service facilities, beauty and representation of the city. The findings of the research indicate that tourists have evaluated the quality of the inputs of the city of Yazd in terms of the desired indicators in an average, so that none of the inputs are refocusing the identity of the city. Comparing the three inputs, Yazd-Kerman entrance is lower in terms of tourists.
