Small semi wrecked old building half way between Holiday Inn and Marina. Unless you have a special reason for wanting to see the Sheik's tomb don't make a special effort to go there. Lots of garbage thrown about.

It is just a landmark. Go to see it, if you are here on the promenade. Do not, if you are not a freak of Mamluk period.

It's just an old building next to the beach. Nothing really to see. Don't make a trip just for this.
