  madrassa halawiyya
by call_me_rhia

A madrassa i liked for its simple architecture, and for the delicate ornaments of the main door. As far as I know it's not possible to visit inside, which I regretted a bit, since part of it it's built over the ruins of a 6th century christian cathedral dedicated to Saint Helen. i reallywished I could have seen how they had combined the structure of the two buildings into one, but alas! no luck! Next time maybe...

Address: souq ibn al-khashab
Directions: in the old town,m opposite the western entrance of the big mosque
