While the ancient Greek port of Apollonia has had much of its structures disappear from landslides, like the great earthquake of 365, it remains a very attractive place, although not that impressive as Leptis Magna, Sabratha and Cyrene itself.
Most of what remains today dates from the Byzantine era (5th/6th century AD) when the city was known as "city of churches".
Duke's palace was once the biggest palace of Cyrenaica. The Byzantine governor lived here with his maitresse Theodora.

Directions: Located between Ptolemais and Cyrene - east of Libya
