    The way to

    by dr.firas Updated Nov 12, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The way to the passages is full of secret ways and narrow with many secondary ways and paths, which gives you the right atmosphere in a typical great medieval Citadel

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The City is shown from here, all the separated parts and passages from one to another! the good thing of having the roofs destroyed is that you have the clear living map in front of your eyes :-)

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Museum is inside the citadel, and is much folkloric one, it is located near the coliseum and the Mill, and the building in the past used to be an ottoman house
