Palmyra: Amongst Syria’s Ancient Ruins


“An oasis in the Syrian desert, Palmyra contains the monumental ruins of a great city that was one of the most important cultural centres of the ancient world,” states UNESCO.

Being amongst these ruins is most extraordinary but the most cherished memories are of the Syrian people … friendly, outgoing and hospitable. Palmyra is currently in turmoil, as is the rest of the country, and some of these structures have been destroyed since the filming of this video. Our thoughts are with the Syrian people, this grand and historical place, and the people who fought to preserve it for as long as possible.
