  • Climbed or went up here in 1992 it gave a compelling view. The landscape is barren and give a gray experience. But with the Palmyra's date palms provides an oasis of greenery. I hope more people can take advantage of in the future.

  • The Muslim Castle in the desert, and more specifically its ruins. Is worth seeing in my opinion not necessarily. Desert dust and a fragment of the building, you need to very turn imagination.

  • This castle was built on top of nearby to Palmyra mountains. Visible from almost any point of the city. Accordingly with its walls feature views and ancient Palmyra, and Valley towers, and OASIS, and Tadmor. Before you can get there by taxi from Tadmora
