Eastern Catholic Churches
The Eastern Catholic Churches are autonomous, self-governing particular churches in full communion with the Bishop of Rome, the Pope. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Catholic_Churches for the included churches. There's overlap with Syriac Churches, but not all Syriac Churches are Eastern Catholic (and vice versa).
|Aleppo||Mar Assia Al-Hakim is Syriac Catholic|
|Asmara||Kidane Mehret Church, on Adi Quala Street, Asmara is the cathedral of the Eritrean Catholic Archeparchy of Asmara. (wiki)|
|Byblos||St John the Baptist Church is now Maronite|
|Damascus||Armenian Catholic + Chapel of Saint Paul at the Bab Kisan is Melkite|
|L'viv||Ukrainian Catholic, Armenian Catholic|
|Mexico City and Xochimilco||This was a little surprising, but the Maronite cathedral, Catedral de Nuestra Señora de Balvanera y Santuario de San Charbel is right in the historic center, at Correo Mayor #5. The building was also part of a Conceptionist convent, the Convento de Jesús de la Penitencia. The church is the seat of an Eparchy.|
