The Red Castle (Assaraya al-Hamra)

The Red Castle (Assaraya al-Hamra)

The Red castle, situated on the outskirts of the Old City in Tripoli, will definitely be a highlight of any visit to the capital city. The Assaraya al-Hamra is made up of a number of courtyards. The complex is a central part of Tripoli's skyline and contains a number of Ottoman style fountains and statues as well as the National Museum (Jamahiriya Museum) where you can view the Volkswagen Beetle once driven by Gadaffi. Other pieces in the museum include a number of artefacts from the Roman and Greek occupation as well as pieces from Libya's UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Sabratha and Leptis Magna. The castle also houses Libya's Department of Archaeology.

Address: Sharia Omar Al Street
