Consider visiting Medebar Market and seeing the combination of human imagination and craft firsthand.

The craftspeople make all kinds of useful things, from furniture to decorative pieces. In this way the community reduces the amount of garbage and copes with difficult economic circumstances. By purchasing some of their pieces, you can support them. To visit Medebar Market and other attractions in Asmara, use our Asmara road trip planning app.
