Tripol is the largest and capital city of Libya. It was founded in the 7th century BC by the Phoenicians, who named it Oea.

Tripoli is the principal sea port, and the largest commercial and manufacturing centre in Libya. It is also the site of Al-Fateh University. Due to the city's long history, there are many sites of archaeological significance in Tripoli. The climate is typical Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers, cool winters and some modest rainfall.
