We spent a few hours at the citadel, exploring the various buildings and having coffee while looking out over Aleppo. During prayer times you can hear dozens of mosques all give the call to prayer simultaneously, the sound is quite an experience. Afterwards we walked through the souqs close by and did some shopping. I would definitely recommend this attraction.

I recommend bringing... More
