“Neatly tucked but traffic to be controlled”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Lovely old shops, old collection of antiques and well laid out roads. Spices galore but expensive. Be a good bargainer to get the best.

“Intriguing corner of town”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

A very atmospheric little area, with a sense of history. Yes, there are dozens of little shops of different types, and proprietors who will try to entice you through their doors, but that's part of the fun. We found some beautiful embroidered goods in one of them. Don't get there on a Friday afternoon though, because a number of places will be closed, including the synagogue.

“Bargain antiques and gifts”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

This area is full of antique shops, well 100 m of them. Also has shops selling other gifts. The synagogue is worth a visit, but the main attraction is gifts.

“Treat to eyes”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Jew town as such is just a path where there are shops and diff antiques (So called antiques not sure about the authenticity) are there but the best part is the Jews synagogue, its such a beautiful monument made with all the love for Jewish god.
The carving in the synagogue is just amazing, the best part are the tiles that are on the floor white tiles with blue drawings on the same its just out of the world and some very fine art.

Worth a visit dont miss it at all.
