Benghazi is the second most populous city in Libya and the largest in Cyrenaica.A port on the Mediterranean Sea in the Kingdom of Libya, Benghazi had joint-capital status alongside Tripoli, possibly because the King and the Senussi royal family were associated with Cyrenaica rather than Tripolitania. Benghazi is known for nature, historic sites, and spas. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: steep yourself in history at Ptolemais, pause for some serene contemplation at Benghazi Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of Atiq Mosque, and take in the awesome beauty at Jebel Akhdar.
