Pelo Mundo...  Palmira, hoje Tadmor, era uma antiga cidade na Síria central, localizada num oásis a cerca de 210 km a nordeste de Damasco. A localização estratégica da cidade, aproximadamente a meio da distância que vai do mar Mediterrâneo até ao rio Eufrates, tornou-a num ponto de paragem obrigatório para muitas das caravanas que seguiam aí a sua rota comercial. O nome "Palmira" refere-se, tal como o prenome feminino, às palmeiras — árvore que supostamente existiria aí em grande quantidade.
