Damascus´s old houses

recommendation by fer

Some of the old houses of Damascus are preserved today and open their doors to visitors. Eg Beit Jabra, perhaps most conspicuously of all, now converted into a restaurant, or the more modest and Beit Aqqad, former residence of a family of textile merchants, and today is the Danish Institute, near the Straight street. Built in wood carvings, all surrounding a beautiful courtyard.
