There are several Christian cemeteries just south of Sodeco Square along the east side of Damascus Road.
On the day I visited, most of them were locked. But here, the door was wide open. The sign above the door has the year 1850 on it, and does that say Catholic? I'm sure one of you will tell me in the comments.
In I went.
After the simplicity of the military sites I'd already visited, the ornate angels sort of surprised me. Angels. And then I was surprised that something so familiar to me had become unexpected.
They were quite beautiful.
Someone asked when I posted the photos of the Martyrs Cemetery if I could read the inscriptions. I can't. I can make out dates and sometimes names, but that's not the same.
Tomorrow, I'll post photos of a second Christian cemetery only a few hundred meters from this one.
