  • All the way to Aleppo! The most famous of all this is the World Heritage Aleppo Castle! From 2000 BC to the present, it has always been closely linked to the history of world development. In ancient times, it was influenced by the Hetty civilization, the Assyrian civilization, the Archibald civilization, the ancient Greek civilization, the ancient Roman civilization and the Arab and Byzantine. Aleppo was conquered by the Arabs in 637, fell into the hands of Nicheforro in 962, was occupied by Egypt's Fatima in the 11th century, and was looted by Genghis Khan's forces in 1260. In modern times, the ancient city has gone through all the best. Because of this history, Aleppo is a city with no defenses, with a castle restored after the 1260 disaster and walls that hold three medieval gates. The ancient fortress of Aleppo, which stands in the middle of the city, is the most important historical monument of the ancient capital, and can be seen from a distance as its majestic outline. !!!
