"Al Bayda" Al Bayda' by grets
Al Bayda' Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 6 photos
Just a place for us to stop overnight, there really is nothing in this town to attract visitors. The main street is lined with dirty shops and cafés and plastic palm trees!
The religious importance of Al Bayda runs back to it being the centre of the Sanussiyy movement, which has had central formative importance for modern Libya. The Italians took control of the town and during the years after independence, King Idris used Al Bayda as his adminstrative head quarters.
- Pros:Are there any?
- In a nutshell:Just somewhere to sleep, albeit not very comfortable
This is where the resistance fighter Mukhdar held out in caves, ready to fight for his country against the Italians.... more travel advice
