    Although the citadel was partly occupied by the military with their three tanks parked outside, there was plenty to see of the Castle with at least two towers dating back to the Crusades. The museum is well laid out with very interesting information. The views over Tripoli are superb and from the front gate the Souk is easily accessible on foot.

    I love visiting Tripoli because it is more authentic than many places in Lebanon. The souk is bustling and energetic. I felt warm, safe, and welcome. I have visited alone and with a guide. The guide brought out things I had not seen before,

    The mosque is best visited with a guide. It is a moving place to see, especially as it is a dynamic, living place of worship. The simplicity and the architecture made be glad to have had the opportunity to visit it several times. I recommend seeing this place and other with someone who loves Tripoli and who is able to bring the city and its attractions to lfe.

    The best traditional souk in Lebanon! The prices are super low even if you don’t bargain! The people at the shops are super kind and helpful and most if them speak English! Of course like in all other souks you have to be careful about your personal stuff since the place is very crowded. Overall, our experience at Tripoli was amazing!

    It is one of not many mosques which is easy to visit by no Muslims. It is a beautiful building, makes great impression and is a great place to learn more about Muslim culture. As in any mosque, remember to remove your shoes before entering, there are shelves next to the door. Wear modest clothes covering knees, elbows, etc. Women need to cover hair as well. There was a gentleman who for a small fee was renting headscarves. I definitely recommend visiting the place, religion is important part of local culture.

    It is one of the most famous monuments in Tripoli city centre. Stop by for a few minutes, listen to its bells ringing the time of the day.

    The International Fair is astounding. One does not expect to encounter a modernist dream, designed by Oscar Niemeyer (of Brasilia fame) in a Middle Eastern city. Hopefully, the site will be preserved. There is a great danger that it will be lost to development. Never finished, it is a place of unusual significance and interest,

    A hot September afternoon when I arrive at the Al Burtasiyat Mosque, built in 1376 by Issa al-Burtassé, named after him, dating back to the Mamluk period.
    The district in which it is located is poor and dusty, the river by which it was built is only a far memory, only its bed full of debris and rubbish remains. In the midst of all this ugliness stands the beautiful minaret and the interior of the mosque, interesting for its ceiling with arches like so many little stars and for its mihrab coloured with various marbles.
    Worth a visit and a prayer, amen!

    This place is located just at the entrance of Tripoli gold souk, just opposite to Bahjat Yamak Jewellery. Walls of sand stones, cold in summer and warm in winder, a really marvelous place.

    This the most beautiful mosque in Tripoli in my opinion, it has been made of expensive materials, looks like Turkish style, similar to Al Amin mosque in Beirut but Al-Shoker is smaller, it is very clean and quiet worship place.

    It is well preserved Hammam. It does not work anymore, but you can visit it free of charge. It seems like it could work again without any difficulty, it is all preserved in a very good condition. Look at the ceilings and domes - they are fascinating!

    Absolutely wonderful day spent lost in Tripoli today. Bassem’s knowledge and passion for the city made it all the more interesting and enjoyable. Wandering through the lanes, monuments, hammams, discovering hidden gems, listening to the stories whilst enjoying some great food!
