Ancient City of Damascus - Syria

Founded in the 3rd millennium B.C., Damascus is one of the oldest cities in the Middle East. 
In the Middle Ages, it was the centre of a flourishing craft industry, specializing in swords and lace. 
The city has some 125 monuments from different periods of its history – one of the most spectacular is the 8th-century Great Mosque of the Umayyads, built on the site of an Assyrian sanctuary.
