Site of Palmyra
Site of Palmyra : Michelin's recommendations
Palmyra exudes an aura of legend. The name evokes caravans laden with spices and silk, its ambitious queen Zenobia, and 18C explorers who set out to discover the site. Seventeen centuries after its sack by Aurelian’s Roman legions, the city once again dazzles with its columned temples and paved streets, the massive walls of the temple of Ba’al and the amazing towers of its tombs. When the sun sets, its golden stonework appears to be ablaze.
