Before leaving to the discovery the souk,
The souk of Aleppo is entirely covered and rather not very tourist. We thus find the
majority of the products necessary to the everyday life of the Syrians.
Merchant of pans and kettles manufacturer of scissors
an interior court

The corner butchery remains a beautiful spectacle: pieces of meat hung on the doors,
tongues, heads, and feet of goat… with the intestines in premium
the choice does not miss
remain of beef
always dry fruits
fountan at every street corner entry of hammam in the middle of the souk
waiter of tea in the lanes
Aleppo is famous for these soaps containing olive oil

Displays for Syrians
The bimaristan Argoun :
old psychiatric hospital renovated in museum .
We pass from room to room to follow the evolutions in the treatment of the patients
First court: the dangerous ones. They were locked up with windows giving on a small calm
court with a fountain and musicians to alleviate the patients. Pollux into insane...
The patients could saunter in the second court
the third court is even more open… the fourth accepts the visitors .
The large mosque :
the style of the souk perspires in the large mosque
small tea break in the hotel which accomodated
when she wrote “the crime of the East express train”. Decoration did not change.
The Syrians are very proud of this mosque
which is not common
