Sidon Attractions

The entrance to Sidon from the north is on a wide divided highway lined with palm trees. As you approach, the landmark Crusader Sea Castle and modern port installations are immediately visible. The busy main street is full of small shops of every kind, including patisseries, whose oriental delicacies are stacked in little pyramids.

Citadel of Sidon

 

 

Sidon is famous for a variety of local sweets which you can watch being made in the old souk or in shops on the main street.

 

The particular specialty of Sidon is known as "senioura," a delicious crumbly cookie.

 

The old section of modern Sidon developed at the end of the Crusader period. Here the visitor will enjoy wandering along the sea front to the Crusader Sea Castle, and looking around the old souks, “khans” (caravansaries) and other medieval remnants.
