Aleppo

Full of medieval architecture and traditional heritage.

Aleppo, once Syria’s largest city and commercial hub, is today a divided and battered metropolis. The ancient city and its Citadel are in the government-controlled west, while the rebel-held east is a warren of damaged buildings and rubble-strewn streets. Although much of the Old City has been destroyed, its narrow streets, ancient souks (markets) and traditional houses remain. The Umayyad Mosque, with its two minarets, is a beautiful and imposing sight, as is the Carlton Citadel Hotel, which offers stunning views of the city. These days, Aleppo is a city of survivors, people struggling to get on with their lives in the face of war, loss and destruction.
