"Qasar al-Libya" Qasr Libiya by Luchonda

Qasr Libiya Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 54 photos

Castle of Libya

Qasar (stands for castle) al-Libya is located east of Benghazi close to Al Byda and founded by the Byzantines. The site offers interesting findings. Among the highlights a Byzantine church dates back to the reign of the Emperor Justantin (6Th. Century AD) and a museum featuring the worlds oldest fine Mosaics. I will never forget that we visited this museum twice. Reason : the first time we arrived around 5pm, but there is no lightning in the museum.

Unique mosaics

The original location of 50 mosaics was a Byzantyan church, about 100 meters on yr left entering the castle

    Stunning mosaics on your page! I'd like to see the Pharos Lighthouse on a panel... Thanks Luc for sharing!
