Sidon is an important commercial and administrative centre, its star a Crusader Castle overlooking the harbour. The old town with its winding alleys and colourful souqs has maintained their Middle Age’s features.

The ancient history of this city is obscure not only for lack of archeological excavations but also for the plundering of its antiquities and ancient monuments at the end of the nineteenth century and beginning of the twentieth century.

A lot of monuments and antiques from Sidon can be found with other antiquities in international museums.
