Syria is the Arab country that more than any other has preserved the traces of the pre-Islamic world. In fact, it has known all the cultural experiences that preceded the spread of Arab culture: from those of the various Semitic civilizations, centered in Mesopotamia (the current name refers to the Assyrian civilization, with a link of three millennia), to the successive cultures introduced by the Mediterranean civilizations: Phoenician, Greek, Roman. Subject to a long period of foreign domination, first under the Turks and then under the French mandate, Syria experienced a general decline whose signs were impressed in a marked way in the history of the country. Nonetheless, the Syrian people have never lost the awareness of their past, their value and their cultural wealth, admirably exemplified by the remains of their historic cities, such as Damascus, Palmyra and Aleppo. or from the fortresses built by the Crusaders such as Crac des Chevaliers. The country, socially encouraged by a lively and enterprising bourgeoisie, emancipated thanks to mercantile experiences and emigration, sensitive to the traditional values ​​of the Arab world, but at the same time open to the call of progress, has actively participated in recent decades in the movements Arabs that arose in an attempt to make the Syrian state the leading power in the Middle East area.

According to COUNTRYAAH, Syria is a nation in Western Asia, the capital city of which is Damascus. The latest population of Syria is 17,500,669.

In Damascus, located at the foot of the Anti-Lebanon, in a place already quite excluded from Mediterranean influences, no more than 200 mm of rain fall per year and the temperatures in January and July go from 6-7 ºC to 27 ºC.
