Palmyra Syria: A Photo Essay of an Ancient City

I was lucky enough to visit Syria before the country fell into chaos. Over a five day visit I was blown away by the very friendly people and the wonderful charm of Damascus. I feel so sad every time I see footage of what has become of this lovely country. During that trip I am so pleased that I did a day trip to Palmyra.

I believe quite a bit of Palmyra has sadly now been destroyed. It is still standing but many key areas of the old city like the theatre now have several areas in rubble.

I wanted to share these photos of Palmyra before the war so that all can see what this amazing ancient city was before such dreadful times.
