Norias (Water Wheels), Hamah

4.3
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Hamah
See seventeen wooden Norias (Water Wheels) along Orontes River, a site submitted as a tentative World Heritage Site. The norias transferred water to an aqueduct that further provided water to farms and the city. The 20 m (65.6 ft) long norias date back to 4th century, although some believe them to be even older. See the largest noria which provided water to the Great Mosque of Hama. In addition, you can see the aqueduct in a good condition. Few of them still work, however they remain today a tourist attraction. Add Norias (Water Wheels) and other attractions to your Hamah trip itinerary using our Hamah day trip planning app .

  • These water wheels are synonymous with Hama and no visit is complete without going there. There are some cafes and restaurants closeby where you can sit and watch life go by  more »
  • Paternosters giant wooden, durable beauty through history told by Assi tender and lush and beautiful, if I visited Syria and do not see the Hama because I lost a lot, and if I visited Hama waterwheels did not enjoy it like you didn't see anything.
