The famous Arab explorer Ibn Battuta had nicknamed Nablus “the little Damascus”, and it’s well deserved! With its bustling souk and its well-preserved architecture, the old city of Nablus has nothing to envy the great cities of the Middle-East. Arched windows, vaulted pathways, narrow streets and coloured domes evoke a place full of history. The alleys of the souk are a brilliant display of colours and scents! Fabrics, jewellery, hot peppers, small sweets, sahlab glasses with coconut and cinnamon flavours, hawkers with colourful carts, there’s something for every taste! Lucky visitors may even discover the secrets of the preparation of the famous knafeh!
