Trip Planner: Africa / Libya / Tripoli District / Tripoli / Martyrs' Square
Take a stroll through Martyrs' Square, which has long served as the city's gathering place for socializing and important events. The square saw political protests during the 2011 civil war, and was a focal point in the Battle of Tripoli that same year. Known as Green Square under General Gaddafi's rule, Independence Square during the monarchy, and Piazza Italia under colonialism (when it contained a bread market), today the plaza lies surrounded by a commercial center. Browse and shop for various products, and sit down for a cup of coffee or a meal next to the open square, with a view of the city harbor. Other notable structures include the national museum and a large fountain, which often serves as a meeting point for locals. Make Martyrs' Square part of your personalized Tripoli itinerary using our Tripoli road trip planning tool.

Martyrs Square aka Green Square is the heart of Tripoli city and a huge tourist attraction site, It is the starting point for a number of major city streets, including Omar Al-Mukhtar Street, Mezran Street, December 24 Street (formerly the first of September), and Al-Istiklal Street (formerly Muhammed Al-Maqrif). The former state building was overlooked by each of Tripoli's largest theatres, the Miramare Theater, the Sidi Hammouda Mosque, and a public park.
