House of Amasyali

House of Amasyali, Rosetta, Egypt


House of Amasyali, Rosetta, Egypt


Clearly the finest exterior in all of Rosetta belongs to Amasyali's house. Colours here are stronger and details finer. The house is rather large, and is among those with most space under the ceiling.
Unfortunately it is closed for visitors at the moment, but should you be lucky to visit Rosetta after it reopens you will enjoy seeing the finest wooden ceilings and wall-decorations with extensive use of mother-of-pearl with the mashrabiyyas.
