Leptis Magna

information about libya  Khoms - Libya, Al Khums

One of the most spectacularly preserved ancient Roman cities in the world, Leptis Magna (or Lepcis Magnae) took my breath away. I did not expect anything of the site, because I only saw a few close-up pictures of statues and one picture of the Roman Theatre, but not much more. And that was a good thing, because the city took me by surprise and I threw my imagination on my knees! The grand entry to the site is the Arch of Septimus Severus. It has been wonderfully restored and the result is mind-boggling! It makes such an impact that everything else that I had seen in the Mediterranean of this kind looked now bleak. The path from the entrance to the arch, which is located on much lower ground, does not reveal anything until the very last second and then it hits you! I simply could not believe my eyes. The arch is, for a lack of a better word, perfect. Hadrian’s Baths of Leptis Magna were potentially the most magnificent place in the city and arguably the most extravagant baths ever.
