Landmark · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
Amble around the streets of Tripoli and view the creative flair of Street Murals. During the revolution that led to the fall of dictator Muammar Gaddafi, locals used art as a political tool to illustrate the young martyrs of the time. The murals serve as significant evidence of Libya's past, and have been preserved by their council. Since then, more have continued to pop up in the old Gaddafi complex, particularly with images of women's empowerment. Hire a tour guide if you want to get the full story behind the images, some of which feature text in Arabic or other languages.
