Ksar Nalut in Libya

Ksar Nalut (Arabic: قصر نالوت‎) or Ksar Lalot is a fortified granary, or ksar, located in Nalut, Nalut District in Western Libya. Like other ksour created by North African Berber communities, it is located on a hilltop to help protect it from raiding parties in previous centuries.

Constructed in the 11th century, the Nalut Kasr is a tourist destination, and has been abandoned since the 1960s.[1]
