Damascus -- Crosses in the Mountains
During our stay in Syria, we mostly saw mosques. Understandable since 80-90% of Syrians are Muslims or some Islamic sect like the Druze or Alawites. However, our day in the mountains took us to a couple cities where we saw more crosses than minarets. Here are crosses in Saydnaya and Maaloula.
Of course on churches
but also high on the hills
and on homes

St. Georges Monastery
