A fascinating bit of old Damascus right opposite the Four Seasons Hotel. Originally a hospice with a mosque in the Ottoman style, it now has a few handicraft shops but it still exudes an air of peace and tranquillity.

Simply dismiss the many store owners which are trying to get you into one of their shops and just look at the many sights in this famous souq! Don't forget to look up, as you will be amazed at the lovely architecture.

This is a great place where you can see some of the locals making items such as glass and paintings and embroidery. More relaxed than the main Souk. Dont forget to bargain hard.
