Extremist nation, governed by a dynastic dictatorship since further on 35 years (first father Assad and from 2000 Assad son), engaged Lebanon militarily by making it in fact an its protectorate.
Despite the democracy lack it is a very beautiful nation, with towns charming as Damascus and Aleppo; with fantastic archaeological centers as the wonderful Palmira, Apamea, Bosra; with impressive crossed heritages as the Krak des Chevaliers (the riders' amazing fortress) and with a desert striking that recalls biblical scenes.
Stop to the descend of the sun in the immense very beautiful courtyard of the Mosque of the Omayyadi to Damask or climb up the fortress of the Qalaat ibn-Maan and dominate the impressive ruins of Palmira, they are among the most beautiful experience that you can live in the whole Middle East.
