Sunset at the Dunes of Ghadamis

Located in western Libya the history of this oasis town is thought to go back some 5000 years. It owes its origins to the copious fresh water that till recent years kept the oasis full. For two centuries it was a Roman outpost and the Berbers were converted to Christianity until the 7th Century when the Islamic armies came and brought in Islam.

For centuries Ghadames has been an important trading town. Many caravans originated from and ended their journey at Ghadames.
