Museums Parks Historic Sites
The conservative city of Hamah stands as the fourth-largest urban center in the country, and boasts a number of historic sites and a rich, complex heritage to match. Though much of the old town was destroyed during the massacre of 1982, a number of old buildings and structures remain, including the 17 norias--large waterwheels traditionally used for irrigation, but now solely for decorative effect. The city makes a good starting point for explorations of the northeast of the country, with Hamah itineraries tending to include day trips to numerous historic sites across the wider region.

Where to stay in Hamah

Hamah offers a few hotels, guesthouses, and hostels, primarily located close to the Orontes River and by a central park. If you're going to be heading farther east, then staying in Hamah can make sense, but if you're in town to explore the west of the country, then you'll find the port towns of Latakia and Tartus offer a far greater choice of accommodations, with large and small hotels, guesthouses, and the odd hostel.
