about



Passionné de la Vieille Ville de Saida, André Sacy se base sur une importance documentation, remonte le cours de l'histoire, dénonce les erreurs, et décrit la vie et les relations des habitants des diverses communautés de la ville.

Dans un premier temps, c'est l'histoire vue de Saida et sa région, du Christ aux Arabes, des Croisés aux Ottomans, Fakhreddine, Jazzar, Béchir, le commerce, les missions religieuses, le pillage archéologique, et le Mandat Français jusqu'à l'Indépendance du Liban. Puis, c'est la visite des châteaux, Khans, palais, lieux de cultes, hammams, souks et musées, agrémentée d'histoires récoltées, pour que la mémoire perdure.

La vielle ville de Saida d'hier et d'aujourd'hui n'est ni un livre d'histoire ni un guide touristique. C'est un témoignage de ce que l'on peut voir du passé d'une ville qui mérite d'être plus qu'une curiosité méconnue des libanais, et plus qu'une étape pour les touristes.

-An English: Passionate about Saida's old town, Andre Sacy relies on an important documentation, goes back in history, uncovers errors, and describes the life and relations between Saida's various communities.

First, there is History as viewed by the region, from Christ to the Arabs, from the Crusaders to the Ottomans, including Fakhreddin, Jazzar, Beshir, trade, religious missions, archeological plunder, and the French Mandate up to Lebanon's independence. Then, there are visits of the castles, khans, palaces, places of worship, hammams, souks and museums, with stories here and there so that memory can be preserved.

Ancient and recent Saida's old town is not a history book nor a tourist guide. It is a testimonial of what one can see from the past of a town that should be better known by Lebanese, and more than of a stopover for tourists.
