Take a tour of Archaeological Site of Leptis Magna in Al-Hums, Libya — part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
Buried under the desert sands of what is now Libya, the city of Leptis Magna lay forgotten for hundreds of long years.
Thanks to recent painstaking archaeological work, this beautiful place has once again emerged to the world of people.
The city was built by the Phoenicians nearly a thousand years before the coming of the common era.
Since its origins, Leptis Magna has seen Carthaginians, Punics, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Berbers, and Arabs.
The city gained its greatest glory under the Roman emperor Septimus Severus, whose birthplace it was.
Now visitors can wander Leptis Magna, admiring the great structures such as the amphitheater, the gateways, the necropolis, and the temples.
