Bibendum
Still partially enclosed by its ramparts, the old city of Damascus comprises different quarters and many remarkable buildings. The souks district, at the centre of which stands the Great Umayyad Mosque, teems with life. Nearby, the mainly residential Muslim Quarter is a network of narrow streets lined by blind walls.The Christian Quarter is a mixture of houses and churches... This coexistence is evidence of a certain tolerance among the different faiths. Best seen on foot!
