Convent at Seidnaya. One of the notable and likeable things about Syria is the variety of faiths practising in the country. The convent at Seidnaya, north of Damscus, houses a Christian order of nuns, but is considered holy by Muslims as well. Various miraculous stories are attached to the convent, and it is believed to have particular powers for women hoping to conceive.
