  • Six years before l was here,it is very very nice,wonderful,excellent. But now the war already change everything,the historic sites was bombed by French Air Force,now this site bombed by themselves. This city Aleppo is a stone city,was the best city in Middle East. Walking inside the citadel is a great things,you can feel people was living here like normal life. And it has great view of Aleppo city. I don't know there is chance to go back or not

  • It was an awesome place before the war , the unlimited view of Aleppo city , and the old city and Souq , it was amazing, It's breaking hearts now
  • One of the most stunning medieval Castle in the middle east.
  • I deeply wish for peace to return to Syria and Aleppo. You are a beautiful country and a beautiful people. You deserve peace.
