Neglected amid continuous war, Leptis Magna is the Roman Empire's most beautiful cities. However it is abandoned in war-torn Libya.
Leptis Magna is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The place is only visited by locals who can be seen wandering in the magnificent imposing ruins.
Visiting the area, a former Roman outpost on the south coast of the Mediterranean, is "a voyage in time, a dive into history", Abdessalam Oueba, a Libyan visitor said.
Leptis Magna was discovered by the Phoenicians then it was dominated by Romans, the city was the birthplace of Septimius Severus, who rose to become emperor from 193 until 211.
