A unique experience of shopping. Silver and antique lovers you will fall in love with this place. So many things to buy while enjoying the sound of traditional music.

This looks like a great market in the spring and summer. However, in the winter it is a bit sparse. I enjoyed walking around and I got a few souvenirs still.
