Standing in the old Sidon souks, the three-story stone building that dates back to the 17th century is lined with arched cells and stables.The building's large inner courtyard is surrounded by high sandstone walls, composed of porticos and lined with dozens of arches that have now begun to shake off decades of dust, cement and plaster applied during the many renovations to repurpose the building over hundreds of years.The project was inaugurated in 2016 and repair works are now in full swing on all three stories of the building, according to the contractor.Construction workers found it particularly challenging to operate on one south-facing section of the building, due to the collapse of a wall of an adjacent building that was damaged during an Israeli invasion.
