"Nalut" Libya Things to Do Tip by worldtraveler55
Libya Things to Do: 206 reviews and 690 photos
The qasr at Nalut has the feel of a small, fortified village and was rebuilt over an eearlier structure in AD 1240.
Rather than facing onto an open courtyard, the rooms with their palm-trunk doors are tightly packed and overlook two narrow thorough-fares without any hint of uniformity.
The structure's interior is strewn with old pieces of pottery once used to store dates, wheat, oil and barley.
As well as the palm-trunk doors and holes used for latches to seal the rooms, look for the small wooden struts protruding from the walls - these provided reinforcement to the walls, wich look fragile but have proved remarkably resilient.
