Major cultural and historical attractions in Syria are ancient monuments of architecture able to keep to this day in its greatness. The first major landmark in Syria is Krak des Chevaliers. This is an old medieval castle of the knights during the Crusades.
Built as the only barrier in the mountains between Turkey and Lebanon. Some historians do not accidentally identify Krak des Chevaliers as the most beautiful medieval castle in the Promised Land. The facility is well maintained and has 13 observation towers and internal moat. This fortress at the time was impregnable.
The city at that time was 200 000 people, about the same as it was Rome. In 1924, excavation works began to regenerate in the amphitheater and the Temple of Baal, and 1500 meters long colonnade (300 vertical columns) on the main road of the city of Palmyra. It is interesting to note the lack of modern buildings in this magnificent Syrian city.
