What travelers say:

The ancient city of Damascus was built in the 3rd century BC and is one of the oldest cities in the Middle East. During the Middle Ages, Damascus was a prosperous handicraft area (swords and ribbons). Among the 125 monumental buildings originating from different historical periods, the 8th century Grand Mosque is the most spectacular. The ancient city of Damascus, located in the southwestern part of Syria, on the eastern foothills of eastern Lebanon, was built on the slopes of the majestic Kexin Mountain. In 1979, UNESCO listed the ancient city of Damascus as a cultural heritage and included it in the "World Heritage List." The Vibass and Genevans all came here to meet with the traveling caravan. There are records about Damascus in the 15th century BC. Historically, it was the center of religion, politics, and trade. It is now the capital of Syria.
