After the Mecca and Medina, the mosque of Damascus, is the third holy place of pilgrimage and of Islam. Highlights the beautiful mosaics in the courtyard and the shrine of San Juan Bautista. In another room is kept the body of Hussein, a martyr for the chii branch of Islam. It is impressive to check the devotion of these Muslims to their holy. Outside the enclosure is the tomb of Saladin. The tickets cost 8 € and women must wear a robe that facilitate the entry. Everyone must remove their shoes.
