This original old house located near the end of the Muslim Quarter is well worth a visit. An interesting place to visit if you are in the Muslim Quarter and have a little time free. You won't need much time to explore, but worth it.

It would be easy to walk past the narrow entranceway and miss this ancient house and with its strong sense of yesteryear. But we were glad to have entered and sensed how well-to-do families centuries ago lived and developed. The courtyards and reliefs in wood...More

We were with a private tour guide and admission to this area was included in our tour. Even with a guide, there wasn't much to see, a courtyard and some non -descript rooms of an upper class official. Others mentioned having tea, we didn't get...More
