Aleppo - the citadel :
In the centre of the old city draws up citadel of Aleppo...imposing, splendid, sublime


              the access passages curve to control the possible attacks
              in the remparts, exists a real city
                all the parts are not from the same time



                bar at the edge of the ramparts under the minaret


  on the roof of the hammam



  Entry of oldest the hammam : Al-Yalbogha an Nasri

               The Armenian district contains sumptuous residences which do not let anything appear
              outside: Beit Wakil is a first example
Cléobule : 18 months...                                    Pollux : 8 years old
We celebrate these birthdays at Sissi, another Armenian house transformed into a restaurant… speciality: Mezze, small
