A large and artistic house. Decorations beautifully show the elegance of place. There are tour guids who will tell the story of the house and the residents.

The hammam is more special but this house is probably even more beautiful. Certainly the best of the three we visited in this neighbourhood.

This is an absolutely stunning heritage property, very well preserved and well worth checking out. Best combined with some nearby, somewhat similar properties.
