The city of Aleppo is built entirely from stone. Its millennia old tradition of using stone in construction has continued to this day even in the new city. The admirable mastery of carving stone is evident in its intricately decorated buildings, particularly in the old city. Attached are some photos typical of Aleppo's unique and beautiful architecture.
