Al Balad Wood Details

Al Balad is the most fascinating sector of Jeddah. It’s the oldest historic part of the city.  Established in the 7th century, Jeddah’s location on the Red Sea and its close proximity to Mecca and Medina ensured its importance as a major trade port as well as the gateway to Islam’s holiest cities.  Several years ago Jeddah was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site, securing its preservation and protection for future generations to enjoy.
