Aleppo's Ancient Souq

Night Market in Aleppo


Thursday, August 18. Aleppo, Syria. I spent one night in Aleppo to see its famous covered souq and khans (merchants' inns), which cover several hectares. Aleppo was a major trading center between the Mediterranean and Asia since Roman times. The highlight for me were the busy night markets, with merchants selling fruits, vegetables, meats, nuts, and other foods.
