Located in the north of Syria, Aleppo is one of the largest cities in the country. The name of the city means "milk giver" in Arabic and was one of the most important weaving centers in the Ottoman Empire. Aleppo contains the ruins of the ancient city of Ebla, which was the center of worship of the Mesopotamian storm god Adad. More than 17,000 tablets have been found in Elba, which shed light on the culture, art, and diplomacy of the classical period. Built on a hill about 50 meters high, Aleppo Castle is the most important symbol of the city's historic character. The Umayyad Mosque, Aleppo Grand Bazaar, Bimaristan, and the Maronite Church are some of the city's landmarks.
