A pittoresque square where local men are still tinkering with metal objects under a large tree. They don't even mind their picture taken in comparison to some in the souk who will easily start shouting at you. The tradition of handmade brass and copper objects...More

Very lively place with plenty of craftsmen working with copper. At some times of the day, they play some traditional music and work on the metals following the rhythm. Very enjoyable!

Can't describe it but it's such a pretty, charming square with a beautiful tree in the middle of it and metal workers undertaking their crafts, shops lined with beautiful products. It's hard to miss and is a welcome sight after being in crammed pathways through...More

This square is where the industry is metal work; making pots, pans and brass goods like lamps etc. So you can see the industry at work and hear the rhythmic sounds of the hammers used to shape metal. Worth visiting this and other neighbouring places...More

Seeing the metal workers is a pleasure (seeing it, not doing it, I'm sure!). This square is very nice, even without them.

This is a triangular souk of the coppersmiths, It's busy and donkeys and their leader come and go picking up and delivering material. Worth stopping and watching.
