Dar Othman

Interesting
Built in the 16C, Dar Othman once belonged to Bey Othman, whose wealth came mainly from privateering (naval warfare which lasted from the 16C to the 19C). This modest-sized house comprises a ground floor and only four bedrooms. The bedrooms have unusual six-panel doors opening onto a small slightly overgrown yet charming garden. The Dar Othman is now home to the offices of the Medina Conservation Department, which is part of the Ministry of Culture.
