Aleppo .. One of the most ancient beautiful cities in the World.

Aleppo - Syria
___

Aleppo is and impressive historic city, mentioned in most ancient records (Hittite, Egyptian and Babylonian) under various names, the most ancient of these records probably goes back to four thousand years ago.
The Alepine structure in its various aspects: culture, arts, architecture,science and manufacturing is closely knit. This comes as a result of the logical conclusion of this strctural functionality; thus one building led to another, so civil, religious, military, commercial, educational, and entertainment architecture resulted from the need for each other; mosques, churches, mansions, souqs,Khans, Madrasa's, hammamts and of course, the city walls and gates were built. Before all these, however, Aleppo's magnificent citadel, stood proudly there, truly embodying the greatness of Aleppo, as well as the ingenuity of the Arabic military construction and grandeur. It must be noted that the use of the stones in constructiongave Aleppo's crchitecture its its specificity, durability, beauty, and, probably, also, its name.
