Help improve Atlas Obscura by expanding The Citadel of Aleppo with additional information or photos.
This large fortified palace sits prominently in the middle of Aleppo, Syria. The citadel dates back to the 3rd millennium and has hosted several occupants such as the Greeks, Byzantines, Ayyubids, and Mamluks to name a few. The castle has been restored extensively over the course of its existence, but endured considerable damages during the Battle of Aleppo. It re-opened again in 2017, but still required additional repairs and restoration work.
