Aleppo Architecture - Syrian Stone
Aleppo, Syria

This city is the color of beige sand, with the façades of buildings refreshingly made from more stone and less concrete. Both the old, new and Christian districts are pleasant places to stroll through, with individual character in the buildings, regardless their age—something that's been generally absent in the cities I've stayed in for many months now.
