    Great NorA thanks for sharing.

    Our ancestors were great men! They transformed the mountains into terraces that they planted. And were able to integrated their houses into the slopes in a terrific ingenious manner. Creating a dwelling for the family, a space for the animals, a smart drainage system that would drain rain water from the ceiling through the walls to an undeground aquifer, in addition to the niches that they had in their houses where they produced the finest silk.

    It's in the historical Naher el Kaleb valley, dog river.
    I'm not sure how old it is though.

    I will check it out nora, these traditional stone houses small and simple or large and grand as you have shown, are something very special and dear. I hope they are as cherished all over as they are in Orlando Florida.
    Great job nora, an enrichment to the forum.

    Just curious nora, do people live there, or is it a public building, the roof looks new, the doors look ancient, what a view...........and no lawn to mow....could use a little curb appeal, cool place.
