Old Al-Balad city is the face of historic Jeddah. Though now in dire need of maintenance, it still serves as tourist attraction with its old architecture and traditional multi storied building. Gabil Market and Nafees House reflect the old days this city has seen. This area of Jeddah is mostly occupied by the poor class.

Nafees House is a magnificent mansion comprising of 106 rooms is a symbol of Jeddah’s rich past. It is now a cultural center in which you can attend exhibitions and lectures. The artwork in the rooms is a cause of fascination for a lot of tourist.
