Last updated: 08 April, 2024

This sprawling citadel is one of the largest and oldest castles in the world – records of its existence in some form date back to 3,000 BC.

Over the centuries, it’s been home to multiple civilisations, including the Greeks, Byzantines, Ottomans and Romans, and has survived multiple invasions and wars, including the recent battle of Aleppo (2012-2016).

Highlights today include the imposing stone entrance bridge, the Ayyubid Palace and the ancient Hammam.
