The Clock Tower, Aleppo: 3 reviews and 3 photos

  Aleppo's Clock Tower
by MM212

Every city in the Ottoman Empire seems to have been gifted with a clock tower in the early 20th century. Aleppo was no exception. Its clock tower was designed in Ottoman-Baroque style, typical of the late 19th/early 20th century. It is located just outside the old city limits at Bab al-Faraj area. Seen in the attached photo is the clock tower, with the recently opened Sheraton Hotel in the background.

Address: Bab al-Faraj Square

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
