WHAT TO SEE
Once full of Hammams only a few now remain in Sidon, but they are still the perfect place to while away the hours relaxingly, after an exploration of the bustling souk. The carefully restored Hammam elSheikh features an impressive high dome ceiling, while 18th Century Al Ward Hammam is Mediterranean in style. One of the finest examples of 13th Century architecture, Omari Mosque, set within Sidon’s Souk, is definitely worth a visit. And don't miss Khan el Franj (Caravanserai of the French), an impressive 17th Century structure built by Emir Fakhreddine for French merchants.
