If you are looking for something small to bring home this is a row of little shops that have little touristy items to bring home. For us we prefer something a little more authentic, but for a quick magnet or shot glass, less quality bag...More

These are storehouses set within the old city walls, but are now very repetitive souvenir shops. There are a couple of better ones: a leather shop, and a housewares place, but virtually all the others are cheap, poorly made souvenirs. The city walls above make...More

This long, stretching gallery has many, many artisan shops to buy local arts and crafts and all the vendors spill out of their stores into the walkway, making it a lively and colourful spot to visit. After you've wandered the hallway, head to the roof,...More

Wherever I go, my favorite place to visit is the market. This is small and offers no better prices than the nicer stores in the Walled City, where the quality of products is much better. Really not worth the trip.p

Come here for souvenirs ! Loads of shops all next to each other. Lovely owners. You can haggle a little bit off the prices on most items- give it a go!

Those places oriented to touristic activities. The diversity of prices for the same article, make that you feel bad with the vendors, who "obly" customers to make a decision.

Good for obtaining souvenirs, hats and other local arts and crafts. Bargaining is a must and it can be much fun. People were nice and "amable" but do put some pressure to buy. Prices seemed to be about same as other city markets and less...More

We stopped by here our last day and wished we had found it earlier in the week. Great assortment of artists without the trouble of all the street vendors. We were mostly left alone to look though the shops and speak directly with the artists....More
