Syria Tourism, Syria Tourist Attraction - Bosra
Bosra is located on a fertile plain about 140km south of Damascus. It is a wonderful place, built in, over and around old Roman buildings. The city is made almost entirely from black basalt. It offers one of the best-preserved Roman theatres in the world. The theatre is particularly unusual in that it was fortified and turned into a citadel. Nine towers were raised around the building and a deep moat dug to further protect it. Inside the citadel, you can still see the magnificent 15,000-seat theatre. Among other places of interest, you can also see the ruins of a nymphaeum, some baths, one of the world's oldest mosques, a 4th-century monastery and a Nabatean arch and column.
