Al-Buzurieh or the spice market was built 850 years ago and is one of the most-to-visit sites worldwide.
Despite its proximity to terrorist-controlled areas through 2018, this market remains strong and resplendent, and continues to welcome daily customers who enjoy its fragrant smells mixed with history.
Among many other products, the market sells perfumes and spices, as well as various types of sweets, dried fruits and olive oil soap, or even the world-famous Syrian laurel soap.
According to Prensa Latina, vendors keep their smiles and hope, and also the generosity they have always been known for by offering sweets to visitors.
Neither the war nor anything else can extinguish the splendor of this souk that has not closed its doors for hundreds of years, not even when terrorists bombed Damascus, vendors claimed.
