Create an itinerary including Bab al-Yemen
See the former southern gate of the Sana fortress at Bab al-Yemen, which today represents a bustling part of the city popular mainly among shoppers. The first version of the gate was built over a thousand years ago, but today's incarnation was constructed by the Turks in the 17th century. While mingling with hundreds of locals and tourists, pay attention to the gate's architecture and design, characteristic of Yemen. You can find all kinds of goods sold at the small market here--from fruits, spices, and different grains, to clothes, handmade dishes, and jewelry. You can plan Sanaa trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
