It is a small soukh you have to walk through to get to the Crusader Castle. After the visit of the archeologic site, you can come back here to have a drink or go all the way down to the small but pitoresk marina.

In point of architectural view or variety the Old Souk is a must journey in Tripoli , a moderate long and covering dress is required or you will be very uncomfortable with harassment!

Basically, this is for tourists only. There are numerous little, walk-in shops offering for sale a variety of goods, from clothes, pictures, ornaments, jewellery and other items. It's a useful place to go to buy some souvenirs or presents for the folks back home.
