Summary

Syria is the last country bordering the Mediterranean Sea, where some quarries are still exploited following the stone extraction methods inherited from the Greek-Roman Antiquity. One of them can be found near the village of Aramal, at about twenty kilometers of the north of Alep, where time seems to be stopped.
