Citadel, Aleppo: 49 reviews and 140 photos
To enter the Citadel you first pass through an outer defensive tower and then walk up the steps of the entry bridge to an impressive portal in the monumental gateway.
It was not easy for enemies to conquer the citadel. When they came up the bridge people in the monumental gateway could pour down boiling oil over them and meet them with a rain of arrows.
