  • Excellent place which offers a great view of the city. Was in 2012. The city struck a mixture of modern life and ancient times.

  • Wonderful sight in this beautiful city that I liked even more. Arrived by train the first appointment was with the Citadel, one of the many UNESCO World Heritage sites in Syria. Unfortunately by 2012 this city is part of the most engaged in the bloody war raging. Built on a high Hill about 50 m has elliptic èpianta of around 400 m in diameter and is surrounded by a deep ditch 22m.; in fact it seems to be located so high because sort on multiple layers of earlier ruins the oldest of which date back to 3000 BC looks Spectacular, could the best way to get familiar with Aleppo.
