Petra Tours & Travel - Syria











Syria is the place to go if you are looking for somewhere which is rich in art and culture. Within different cities in Syria, there are several places to visit and where you can enjoy the richness of the country’s history.

In Damascus, for those who are interested, there is the Omayyad mosque which stands in the heart of the city. The mosque dates back to 705 A.D. Moreover, In terms of religious site, one will find the church of St. Paul. The church is located at the site of St. Paul’s escape. If you are interested in more of the culture rather than religious sites, you can visit the Azem palace which is an

astonishing example of a Damascene house, where the simple, almost primitive, exterior contrasts rather sharply with the beauty and sophistication of the interior. It is located very close to the Omayyad mosque. Next to the mosques as well is the tomb of Saladin. It was originally part of a school built by his son. The interior is decorated by beautiful polychrome marble mosaics. The Damascus Citadel is the only fortress in Syria which does not exceed a hill or a mountain. Inside the Damascus Citadel, houses, baths, mosques and schools were built. It was a city within a city. In 1202, the citadel was demolished and rebuilt by El-Malek el-Adel.

In Aleppo, it is essential to visit the Aleppo Museum where a lot of emphasis is put in the Iron Age as well as the Islamic section. The Great Mosque in Aleppo was the garden for the Cathedral of St. Helena. The Aleppo souk is covered by stone archways. The souk is 30 km long, which makes it the longest one in the Middle East.

Situated 60 Km from Aleppo is the well-preserved Church of St. Simeon. This beautiful church was built in honor of St. Simeon the Stylite who lived here on top of a column for 37 years. This church became famous and was visited by pilgrims from all around the area.

Syria is full of places to visit, things to explore and fascinating experiences. Damascus and Aleppo are only two cities out of many more in Syria where every step has something to say about the country’s history.
