  • Khan al Franj. Very old architecture. Takes you back in time. No entree fee. Upstairs has good library. And it was a place for the foreigners back in the days. Trade / motel center. Interesting and very well preserved.
  • Amazing place in Old Saida where history comes alive to give you a glimpse of the life of the people who lived in the same place as a family reunion regardless of the different backgrounds they had. People used to come to the place from all over the world and especially marchents who were not from the city. They used to have rest at this place before traveling back home. Take a look at this place and see how also the stables where they used to keep horses and animals. Come and visit this site for more information and have a great time relaxing with your family.
