After seeing many castles and citadels in Europe I was a bit disappointed on the overall size of the Damascus Citadel. Don't get me wrong as you must see it and enjoy the sights in and outside. My best shots came along the left wall outside of the citadel along the old river!! Great moments for some great photo's!!
