Wood & camel market - Keren
Wood & camel market

Across the main road is the site of Keren's famous wood & camel market. Up to a hundred camels are brought here on Modays, but even on other days you will see quite a few, plenty of donkeys, carrying loads of firewood to be sold to townspeople.

The main market - Keren
The main market

The main vegetable and fruit market in Keren is a riot of colour, thanks to the gorgeous traditional costumes of the local Tigre and Bilen women.
Beyond the veggie market, you enter the bazaar area with its interesting silversmiths and antique shops.

Colonial architecture - Keren
Colonial architecture

Keren may not be such an overwhelmingly Italian town as Asmara, but it certainly has its share of eye-catching buildings all the same.
Unfortunately, many of these are decaying - gracefully.

Giro Fiori - Keren
Giro Fiori

This "Circle of Flowers" is the centre of Keren.
It is flanked by pretty, colonial-style houses, some of which now house hotels and restaurants. It is the best place to sit and watch the town go about its life.
