Reflected throughout the city, in the markets you will exprience every shade or colour imaginable while the huge squares and small streets vibrancy is intoxicating. While you are visiting, make sure you check out the many historical landmarks that are littered around the area, or soak in the beautiful religious artefacts, mosaics, marble mosques and minarets that all offer a sample of the Muslim culture prevelent in the area. With breath-taking mountain views that will leave you in awe, this quaint but flavoursome city has it all. The Food Dishes to leave your mouth burning.

Like the colour of the food, the flavours are exotic and will definately get your taste buds tingling.
