Key Attractions in Libya

The country of Libya occupies fourth position in terms of area on the African continent. It is predominantly a desert country that is bordered by Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Sudan, Niger and Tunisia and has over 2000 km of stunning Mediterranean Sea coastline. It occupies a total land span of 1.75 million sq km. and a population just short of 5 million. Most of Libya is sparsely inhabited due to a large part of it being part of the Sahara Desert.

While there has been political upheaval in the country since the past few years with the advent of the Arab Spring, it still attracts a number of visitors who are fascinated by its desolate desert landscape. Most of the hotels in Tripoli Libya are very comfortable with the staff being well trained and offering high levels of customer service. There are a good number of tourist attractions, which can be visited which include ancient Roman sites, desert cities and other places of tourist interest.

When in the capital a good place to stay is the Corinthia Hotel Tripoli which offers a classy ambience complemented by fine facilities and excellent customer service. Some of the interesting attractions to visit when on holiday in Libya include:

Tripoli: The capital city of Libya, Tripoli is renowned for its old walled Medina, and is known to be one of the most historic sites to be found in the Mediterranean region. Its basic street plan that still exists was laid out when the Romans ruled the territory, with fortified walls that were constructed towards the landward side to defend against attacks from the interior regions of Tripolitania. The most prominent attraction in the area is its famous castle the Al-Saraya Al-Hamra

Leptis Magna: It is also referred to as the jewel of Libya. The Leptis Magna ruins exist from the Augustan period, which was the time when Tripoli’s first public forum was built. Some of the other major structures that exist in the area are the Temples of Antaoninus and Cyhele. In the Byzantine era these were converted to a church known as the Basilica that also served as the city court as well as curia that served as the city council.

Ghadames desert: Ghadames has been described as ‘the pearl of the desert’ and was built within an oasis. It is a classic example of a traditional settlement and is also out of the most ancient pre-Saharan cities. The principal purpose for its being built was to offer its inhabitants relatively cool housing which could withstand the scorching desert temperatures. It architecture is unique in style and purpose with every storey being assigned different functions

Sabratah: Situated on the majestic Mediterranean coastline, Sabratah was declared a World Heritage site and is a popular tourist attraction. One of its biggest draws is its ancient Roman amphitheatre. The site also has a large variety of Roman temples, fountains, public baths, with many of them being artistically designed with colourful mosaics on the attractions as well as the adjoining museum. There are also remnants of the Byzantine rulers which exemplifies the revival in the area after the invasion by the Vandals.
