  • As historic as it can get. Almost 300 years old market. Still relevant stores that can only be found here. Great to shop as well as sightseeing
  • Historic place but at the same time clean and decent. you can feel how shops were in the middle ages. you can also feel the scent of history here with variety of products including spices as well as modern products. I like it.
  • I loved this place. The architecture of the soiq is really nice and cozy. The doors, the lanes and the lights are all so beautiful here.
  • Nice historical place filled with beautiful traditional stores, Clean and very well maintained, But what i hate about it is the fact that the corridors are very small and tight and very hard to walk through especially when it’s crowded, You also have to pay for parking which is annoying.
  • Historical place. Nice shops
