Cyrene

Cyrene Although this is one of the most important places of the ancient times in Libya, there are only limited sites. Cyrene is one of the Greek cities with less Roman influences, which is for instance reflected in the fact, that you can find different temple complexes, in which Greek gods were worshiped. Mainly you find magnificent buildings of the upper-class. These villas provide an insight into different tendencies of ancient architecture in this time. The most interesting site is probably the extensive complex of a necropolis near the city.
