One of the oldest souqs in the region, named after the state of Shanas merchants who used to populate the souq, now reconstructed for new experiences

Built on the foundations of one of the oldest and most vibrant souks in the region, this beautifully renovated souk specialises in regional designers and unique wares. Each shop is divided in two, with the artisans busy at work on one side and their goods for sale on the other.
