I really enjoyed wandering around Salt,, particularly its colourful, spice-filled souk. The town is lively and fun. Touring the town centre was fascinating; you'll find 19th Century Ottoman houses, painted in pretty colours and boasting period windows. The best known is in the town's main square. It belonged to a certain Abu Jaber, a rich Ottoman merchant.
The town existed during Roman times under the name 'Saltus' and also thrived during the Middle Ages, as seen by the remains of a 13th Century Ayyubid fortress. The archaeological museum was also interesting. It's in a beautiful building and includes a gallery dedicated to the rites and traditions of the Bedouin.
