Bab al-Qinnesrin

sights / Squares & plazas

Lonely Planet review

Sharia Bab Qinnesrin is the southern continuation of Souq an-Nahaseen (Coppersmiths' Souq, which unfortunately no longer houses coppersmiths), and it runs down to Bab al-Qinnesrin, the surviving southern Old City gate. It's been a prime beneficiary of the attentions of the GTZ and the Old City rehabilitation project. It only stretches for a little over 500m, but in that stretch there's quite a lot to see.
