Not too much to tell really as it's quite isolated in the countryside, but the fragile arches and columns of this place are surrounded massive mountains and make a nice place to visit. Aanjar was a small commercial center and stopover linking Syria to the sea. It had a city wall and only two main streets, but these streets were apparently lined with over 600 shops, surely making it one of the earliest outdoor shopping malls! It also had three main palaces, a mosque, and a hammam (Roman baths).
Like I said, nothing too much else to tell, but a nice place to see.
