Shoukri al-Quwatly Street or simply Quwatly Street (Arabic: شارع القوتلي) is the main street of central Homs, Syria. The street is a short, but wide strip of road with a large roundabout at both ends. Central Homs lies on either side of Quwatli Street, named after former Syrian president Shukri al-Quwatli. At its eastern end is the Great Mosque of al-Nuri and Martyr's Square with the old clock tower, while the new clock tower is located at its western end. Much of the street itself is lined with buildings for accommodation, low-price hotels, eateries, coffeehouses, and other venues, as well as the city museum.
