Mar Mousa Monastery is one of spectacular places in Syria. Unexpected to the environment, rocks, stones, dry areas, it survives.
Long centuries ago, it was said that first christians refuged there. Nowadays monastery is revived by monk Paolo, who gives lectures about the peaceful living of religions, beliefs, and mankind.
The church is full of beautiful frescos, where some of them are preserved and some of them are spoiled during time, but still it is clear to have a look and impression.
The rocky nature, right said the ravine is gorgeous. You don't resist the solitary feeling with your thoughts and with yourself. Meditation doers often find calm atmosphere here to check themselves.
