    To add to the previous answer, the Citadel of Aleppo is considered to be one of the most oldest castles in the world. It stands above a 50 meters high hill right in the middle of Aleppo, Syria. It dates back to at least in the middle of the 3rd millenium BC. It’s been occupied many times by the Greeks, Byzantines and much more peoples. However, most of the construction dates back to the 13 century.
