Built by Habib Sakakini in 1897 ...
I've lived my entire life around this fabulous palace..
and I didn't really like living in that neighbourhood because I saw it was very popular (sha3by ya3ni) and the media and films reinforced that idea too..
I always knew it was a unique piece of art, only I never really got close until last week.
Before it was to me "Sakakini pacha's Palace", but now it is Habib Sakakini's Palace. It is unique because unique people lived there, I know now that I live in a beautiful place that has a lot of history.
Believe it or not, I asked my father many times as a child and I still do to buy me that palace so that we could restore it and live there, however he still says we can't afford it.. too bad, isn't it??
