Aga Khan Trust for Culture - The Citadel of Aleppo: Description, History, Site plan & Visitor Tour (Syria)

Today, the Citadel rises majestically from the centre of the Old City, and while many of the currently visible structures originate from the Ayyubid period (12-13th Century AD), the Citadel bears evidence of the multiple historical eras including those of the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Zangids, Ayyubids, Mamluks and Ottomans.
