Mardin Vacations

Turkey
The ancient caravan town is visually intriguing with tiered sandstone buildings that seem to hold sentinel over the checkered Mesopotamian plain. While the city and its architecture is an attraction in itself, the nearby Deyr ul-Zafaran (a.k.a. Saffron) Monastery is what brings most visitors here in the first place.
