Architecture In Libya

Architecture in Libya is largely inspired by the country's colonial history and its proximity to the Mediterranean Sea. It is characterized by its eclectic blend of ancient, traditional and modern styles. Many of the country's structures were built during its long rule by Italy, which left a lasting influence on architecture in the country. Buildings are heavily ornamented, with elaborate stonework that is typical of the Mediterranean and Middle East region. Common features include intricate domes, tiled roofs and tall, columnar structures. These elements also characterise the exteriors of modern high-rise buildings, which often boast grand entrances and balconies.
