The Ancient City of Damascus, Syria

Why it’s special: Damascus—one of the oldest cities in the Middle East, dating back to the third-century B.C.—contains more than one hundred monuments from various time periods, including the eighth-century Great Mosque of the Umayyads.

Why it’s in danger: It was also added to the list in June due to increased military conflicts.
