  • The finest and most beautiful model of Arab art in the 19th century. From the outside building with Lebanese stone and inside the decorative art of Damascus. The halls are decorated with Arab judgments and proverbs. Make sure the timing is to expect in August the place is closed as the summer residence of the President of the Republic.
