Major Cities - Qalamoun
 

Qalamoun

The "Kalamos" of Greco-Roman times and the "Calmont" of the Crusaders, Qalamoun became a center for brass work after metal workers from Tripoli's traditional Souk an-Nahhssin moved here several decades ago.
The main road is lined with small workshops and showrooms where brass bowls, candlesticks and other objects are hammered out in the old tradition. A good look around these shops may turn up interesting antique pieces as well.
Roadside stands in Qalamoun also sell olive oil and fruit syrups made from mulberry, lemon, orange and other juices.
