The tower tombs in the South-West Necropolis are much less impressive and preserved than those in the West Necropolis, or Valley of the Tombs. However, one important tomb located here is the hypogeum of the three brothers (described in a separate tip). If you look south from this necropolis, you will see the edge of the oasis as well as the flat Syrian Desert stretching as far as the eye can see. Quite the sight!
