The city is well paved, and many of the streets are arched over, so that, as in Sidon and intramural Beirut, they have the appearance of vaulted tunnels. Over the door of the Hammam el Jedid is a curious stone chain.

Before its conversion into a prison, access could be obtained to the charming view from the top of its walls. On the east you look down into the river gorge, with its roaring waters, the Mullawiyeh Convent, and the orange groves, with snowy Lebanon in the background piercing the clouds (see page 8).
