DESCRIPTION OF THE EVENT:
Today our trip will be towards the north of Lebanon: Tripoli, a city with many historical gems.
Saint Gilles castle will be our first stop, we will have a guided tour inside the biggest crusader fortress in Lebanon, dating back to the 12th century.
We then will move to visit Hammam Ezzedine, Tripoli’s first Arab public bath, 13th century inspired by Roman-Byzantine style.
Our next stop will be to the famous soap khan, where we’ll visit the workshop and have a chance to buy traditional soap. We will get to see how this ancient craft is manufactured with the highest quality and still uses the traditional way of soap production.
Then we’ll be ready to have lunch at a famous traditional restaurant in Tripoli.
Following that, we will head towards Al-Mina for a guided tour in the old town and through its narrow charming streets.
Last but not least, the trip will be complete with a stop at Al Hallab for delicious local sweets.
Keep on exploring!
