- Collection: Halabiyeh/Zenobia
The hill on which Halabiyeh's citadel rests is presumably the main reason for Halabiyeh's construction. The hill dominates the western bank of the Euphrates at this point where the river valley is significantly narrowed between two plateau's, one on the western side of the river and the other on the east.
Photographs taken of Halabiyeh in December 1992.
This is how Halabiyeh looks from across the Euphrates.
These views of the remains of Halabiyeh were taken downstream of the site, standing on the ruins of Zalabiyeh.
These panoramic views of Halabiyeh and the surrounding area were taken from the Praetorium at the top of the hill overlooking the ancient town.
