Maktab Anbar

Al-Qaymariya, Dar Anbar Avenue, Damascus, Syria
A Jewish Damascene called Youssef Anbar built this beautiful mansion in the second half of the 19th century during the Ottoman period.

The mansion was later converted into a school that became the birthplace of the Arab National Movement against the Ottomans.

During the 1930s, it was turned into a school for women artisans and a museum.

Currently, Maktab Anbar is home to the Damascus Old City’s local authorities.
