Syria seems to be the heart of many religious conflicts of various denominations over the years. I'd really like to do a 'religious tour' of the place - what are the must see places?
Here's some of the oldest and best:
Mar taqla convent - Maaloula (many miracles have happened there and still happen every while)
Mar mousa convent - alnabek city (the convent is in a remote area between the mountains, many europeans are resident monks there)
Al umawee mousque - old damascus (tomb of john the baptist is inside)
Saydnaya convent - the most famous one in saydnaya town about 5 years ago
