Idlib countryside

Spring at Idlib countryside

Idlib is at north-west of Syria, west of Aleppo. The countryside is green and prosperous. A lot of historical sites, mainly byzantine era villages, monasteries, churches, the whole is known as "dead cities", and also some castles, bathrooms, mosaics.

The museum of Maaret Alnooman is one of richest in mosaic and related art exhibitions.

The limestone mass is abundantly present which constitutes a part of attractive nature, beautiful rocky mountains intermixed with agricultural fields, and the Orontes river, which is "historical" in the sense that known history of this region mentions this river in the oldest scripts.
