History of Biet Nassif
Heralded as a stunning example of old Arabic architectural styles combining with more modern sensibilities, the Biet Nassif draws many visitors to old town Jeddah each year. The structure towers five stories above the surrounding landscape, much as it has since its construction in the mid-1800s. The Nassif clan has owned the Biet Nassif, fully renovated in the 1990s, for generations.
Located on one of the city's main thoroughfares, Suq al Alawi, Biet Nassif has been central to the city for decades. The founder of Saudi Arabia, King Abdul Aziz ibn Saud even once visited the house.
Today, Biet Nassif serves primarily as a museum for the city, with a collection to match its unique architecture housed within.
