Tripoli The Old City

Let’s have a walk together in my beloved city to celebrate this new coming year.

Tripoli the capital of north Lebanon has often been compared to Cairo, the city with the largest Mamlouk heritage in the world. Another reason to discover some of its neglected forgotten jewels through a walk around its vibrant souks, hidden Hammams, majestic Mosques, colorful khans, stylish Madrassas (Coranic schools) and more.

The city was also once the capital of the Crusader County of Tripoli and the provincial capital of the Ottoman Eyalet (state) of Tripoli; we will come across some of the traces that remain of these periods too.
