Trípoli is situated in the northwest of Libya, on the edge of the desert. Trípoli has a population of 1.690.000 inhabitants. The total area is 400 km2 . Tripoli was founded in the 7th century BC by the Phoenicians, who named it Oea.It was also occupied by a series of other peoples, Carthaginians, Greeks, Persian Empire, Romans, Vandals, Arabs, Turks and Byzantines.

The climate is Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers, cool winters and some rainfall.
We speak Arabic. Tripoli is the capital and has the principal sea port in the country.The Port has traditional industries that include the makers of carpet and cigarettes, tanners, fishing, and fish canneries. Newer heavy industries include an oil depot, gas-bottling plant, and some vehicle assembly plants. The Port of Tripoli is also part of a coastal oasis that supports agricultural products like olives, fruit, vegetables and grains. With a very long and rich history, the Port of Tripoli also contains many archaeological sites.

There are important archaeological museums in Tripoli; The Assaraya al-Hamra (the Red Castle), is the most important castle in Trípoli . It is located on the outskirts of the medina.
The Gurgi Karamanli is the most important mosque.
The Arch of Marcus Aurelius is the only surviving Roman monument in the city.

Tarragona will be the organizing the Mediterranean games in 2017 but Tripoli was the principal rival to be the organizer.
