Going out of town, past the Hotel Palmyra, you come to the Roman quarry that supplied the stone for the ancient city and the temples.
What you have really come to see here is a gargantuan hewn block of stone, still embedded in the ground, so enormous that it defeated any efforts to move it.
Local legend says a woman touching the stone will be made fertile, and one of its names is Haja el-Hubla (Stone of the Pregnant woman).
