The building itself is very interesting. However, I did not think the the artistic/craft works for sale were unusual. It's worth a visit, but I wasn't tempted to buy anything.

It wasn't planned, but it was a good moment of the day. In the crowdy streets we found calm place with good view, architecture, food and wine. I liked it much.

Buyuk Han is not the most sensational of tourist attractions but it is worth a visit. There are some nice cafes within it and you can purchase traditional Turkish crafts and artwork around the outskirts of the courtyard. The architecture is great too.
