Celebration of water

L'Atrun, Libya

L'Atrun, Libya

This is a spot of great supply of water, the Byzantine built the town of Eythron here.
There are two basilicas, the Western Church which is noted for its white columns. Look out for the fine mosaic pavings. Over a hill, some 150 metres away, lies the Eastern Church, which is less attractive.
Nearby there are numerous small caves, which may have been tombs of even summer homes.

No reports of anything. Derna is the best base.

There should be public transportation passing through here. Otherwise arrange your own transportation.
