Although it's Syria's third-largest city and only 100 mi/160 km north of Damascus, few visitors bother to stop in Homs. The main sites include the Great Mosque al-Nuri, the Um al-Zunnar Church and the Church of St. Elian, where some very old frescoes were discovered in 1970.

Homs is well-situated for making day trips to nearby sights of interest, especially Krac des Chevaliers.
