Ma`lula Local Customs: 4 reviews and 4 photos
Maalula is really a strange place: I wrote before that people of different faiths go there on a pilgrimage, or that different religious denominations coexist under the same roof, peacefully. On top of this, the little village presents another peculiarity: the language! Although all people are taught arabci at school, the native language of the inhabitants, and the one they commonly use, is Aramean - supposedly the language spoken by Jesus. And it's quite a musical languahe to listen to.
