  • Al-Mariamiyeh - Greek Orthodox Church - Damascus

One of the largest and most important churches in Old Damascus, al-Mariamiyeh is the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate. Although the structure dates from the 19th century, the church existed on this site since at least Byzantine times. It is known for its collection of ancient icons. This church is located just north of the Roman Arch on Via Recta and the western edge of the Christian Quarter.
