This is a series of 7 mountains made of marble and the industry that has grown up around them. There are many, many marble cravers and sculptors in the surrounding streets of the main mountain and even an elevator that you can ride once to the top of the main mountain. Yep, that is a bit weird and they do monitor it. The carvings up the top, sitting on and in the mountain are beautiful and well worth the trip. It will take you an hour or so to look around the top and then more time to explore the sculptors street shops
I don't want to put anyone off by saying 'very touristy', you just need to be aware that this is another market. Remember to barter, there are many shops selling the same thing. The really good stuff, the stuff you pay extra to get sent home by courier, is in the surrounding streets but there are many talented carvers and sculptors there too, so shop around. Plus, beware of the scammer tour guides up the top of the mountain who insist on showing you around and then insist on hefty payment. It's not that big, you can look around by yourself and there are maps everywhere to help you find your way.
