Damascus - Beit al-Sebaai (دمشق - بيت السباعي)

Beit al-Sebaai (بيت السباعي) is one of several charming houses in the old city of Damascus (دمشق) built during the Ottoman period (1769-1774). It is now publicly owned and maintained by the Syrian government, frequently used as an art exhibition space and entertainment venue, and occasionally a location for television shows that are set in the Ottoman and French Mandate periods. While relatively small compared to other historic residences in the area, it is still worth a visit. It is usually open to the public, though hours are sporadic.


Getting There: Beit al-Sebaai (بيت السباعي) is located less than one hundred meters south of Khan Assad Basha (خان اسعد باشا) in the central area of the old city of Damascus (دمشق).
