It is a beautiful area with narrow streets, traditional houses and two towers. The first one is in a small garden, and the second near the lighthouse.

The street is hosted by the Church of  the Lady of the Sea and the oldest craft of the wooden craft industry. It was called “Rashid Nakhla Street”, the author of the Lebanese national anthem, who lived in the “old house of Salha”.
