Lattakia

Latakia is Syria’s main sea-port on the Mediterranean (186 km southwest of Aleppo). It has retained its importance since ancient times.

Latakia was one of the  five cities built by  Saluqos Nikator in the  second century B.C. He named it after his mother, Laudetia.

Not many ancient remains have survived in Latakia , but there are four columns and a Roman arch from the time of Septimus Severus (circa 200 A.D.), in addition to a beautiful Ottoman construction called “Khan al-Dukhan”, which is now a museum

Latakia is the sea-gate to Syria. It is well-provided with accommodation, and is well-placed  as  a base  from which to  explore  the coastal  regions  of the country.

There are beaches, mountains, archaeological sites and many relics of the Crusaders, all within a few hours from each other.
