Souk Al - Hamidiyya

Souk Al - Hamidiyya

South of the citadel is the largest souk in Damascus, Al-Hamadiyya. It is a large covered market in the heart of the Old City. It reminds me somewhat of Paris, of some stores, a little of an old medieval market. A set of cobbled streets with all kinds of shops and stores (from veil shops to pubs, jewellery or bridal shops). The whole iron dome is speckled with tiny holes, like dots of light, which look like small stars. These holes are bullet holes caused by the francea aviation machine guns during Syrian nationalist rebellion in 1925! A fun place to walk through, although to buy crafts the historic shops are better.
