This is directly across the street from the Bab Mansour Gate so if you stop to see the gate give it a quick view and head across the street to the square. I got the sense that 90% or more of the markets here cater...More

Beware of the 2nd restaurant on the left that has a yellow menu card and sells “fresh grilled chicken”. The menu looks pretty cheap and (of course) they’ll try their best to get you eat in their restaurant. They will charge you extra, which they...More

The plaza and market were the highlight of the city. Tiny market, but this one had more charisma then some in other cities. Perhaps more authentic. Worth a walk in/around. Right in middle of city, near gates/wall.
