Afternoon :

Stroll and Discoveries the Alleys of the Old Souk of Saïda

Guided tour
This tower, built in the 18th century by the Hammoud family was bought by the Debbané family in 1800. It is a fine example of Ottoman architecture, with its mosaics and carved wooden ceilings. It suffered a lot of damage during the civil war but it is now perfectly renovated. The Khan Sacy, for its part, is an underground space dating from the Crusader period. It is undoubtedly one of the most magnificent wonders of the old town of Saida. Vaulted rooms follow one another, revealing treasures to discover.
Visit and shop at the Soap Museum and the Château de Terre
This thematic museum tells the story of soap in the Middle East. It was installed in very beautiful vaulted rooms, where you can discover all the stages of making artisanal soap, out of olive oil. After that, a visit to the museum shop is a must! Whatever your skin type, you will inevitably find a soap that suits you... or any other souvenir of this beautiful discovery. We also take a tour of the Château de Terre, the first castle in Saïda, built in 1253 by King Saint-Louis.
Visit of the Hammam El Sheikh, and the al Omari Mosque if it is accessible
The Hammam El Sheikh allows you to discover the classic architecture of a hammam from the time of the Mamluks. Its dome is decorated with stained glass windows that let in colored light. If possible, on the day of the visit, you can also enter the Al Omari Great Mosque, located in the south of the Souk, towards the Saint Louis Church. Built in the 13th century, it was originally a Crusader building, in the form of a fortress.
Visit the old souk
It's time to stroll and enjoy the place, as well as to chat with local traders and craftsmen. Walking through the alleys of the old souk of Saïda, you will discover small shops and traditional stalls that offer some memories of the city.
