Syria Off The Beaten Path: 173 reviews and 199 photos
Whilst not as far off the main Damascus-Aleppo highway as Serjilla and Al Bara, Jerada gets far fewer visitors. Here the ruins lie within a modern village. Most impressive is the 5th Century watch tower. Not only does it still stand to its full height, the massive stone door is both still in place and functioning. Look around the site and you will find a church and several houses, one of which has an interesting eagle carving on the lintel.
Take the turnoff to Babila from the highway, 14 km south of the exit for Ebla and follow the signs to GRADA
