Dead City of Serjilla, Aleppo

(15 reviews on the web)
Ruin Tourist Spot
One of Syria's 700 abandoned settlements, Dead City of Serjilla ranks among the most complex and well-preserved. Here you can learn about the local history of this 5th-century city, and how its citizens lived, working on olive fields and in vineyards. The remains of the once prosperous settlement include temples, houses, and public baths. One of the highlights is the two-story villa that has remained complete; behind it you can see some of the machinery used in the production of olives. With our custom trip planner, Aleppo attractions like Dead City of Serjilla can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
