General views: Tripoli, Archaeological Site of Sabratha, Bi'r al Ghanam


Tripoli, Capital of Libya, with a population of 1,165,000 people, is currently booming, due to petrol extraction. The city was founded by the Phoenicians around 5OO years (B.C.) and has kept traces of that civilization. Phoenician, Roman and Arabic relics contrast with buildings from the Modern era. The video also shows general views of the Archeological Site of Sabratha, which was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1982, and of the small town of Bi'r al Ghanam (Municipality of Yafran). This archive edit was filmed in November 2010.
