Serjilla is one of the ‘Dead Cities’ of Northwestern Syria, located about 65k north of Hama. It is one of the best preserved of the cities, built in 473 CE. The construction date is unusual, as the city was built in the early Christian era. The city was abandoned in the 7th century, along with the other Dead Cities, as the region was conquered by Arabs.

Archaeologically, Serjilla shows evidence of having been a very wealthy community. A bath complex with mosaic-covered floors and traces of murals on the walls. Near the bath is a men’s meeting place, or andron. The site also contains the remains of multiple villas. One two story villa is still standing and contains arches typical of the Dead Cities as well as an olive press.
