The present study refers to an extremely tiny territory of Sirya nevertheless characterized by a huge number of architectonical evidences.

Abstract

The present study refers to an extremely tiny territory of Sirya nevertheless characterized by a huge number of architectonical evidences. Those alone would suffice to classify this territory as one of the most interesting both in Syria and in the whole network of world sites of interest in the Mediterranean. The territory of concern covers an area of about 10 x 15 km and contains some archaeological relevances as in Ebla, historical architectonic attractions as the urban settlements of the “dead towns” Ruweiha and Gerade, architectonic emergencies as the Bizzos church-monastry, the Bizanthinian habitations, and the kinds of houses with raw dirt, namely the domi of the rural settlements of Mardikh, Mardebsi, Anquarati. The aim of this essay is to highlight how an integrated territorial development of the Ebla area can be promoted, through the development of agriculture, tourism, archaeology and craft.
