Bahaa Eddine al-Hariri mosque is an imposing structure on the north side Saida and is clearly visible from the coastal road into the city. Of a particularly distinctive style in Lebanon, and the Middle East in general, it adopts architectural influence from the Ottomans whereby a dome resting on eight octagonal pillars covers the central prayer hall entirely.
This museum we speak of was also an old soap factory belonging to the Audis. One may also see various techniques of production widespread from Aleppo to Nablus. There is a great variety of form, perfume and color for the visitor. One may also visit the old Hamam, a cafeteria, and a sales booth offering a variety of local produce, glycerin scented with honey, lavender or rose, oils for the skin, lotions, hair tonics, eau de Cologne, perfume, jasmine, serviettes and tunics.
