This small and picturesque street with its cozy shops with Judaica and souvenirs is a commercial extension of one of the arched bazaars built by the Muslims. The Byzantine street before was also a shopping street and inherited this designation from the Roman street. Roman streets constructed in the same way in different towns and villages of the Roman Empire were named according to their orientation and purpose. Thus, this street was called Cardo. Cardo comes from the word cardinus - axis in Latin. Cardo streets, usually wide streets of trade and primary transportation, intersected at right angles with small streets called Decumanus. With the intensification of employment in the Muslim period, a street as wide as Cardo was divided into parallel commercial rows by high vaults. We are now in one of them.
