Location Information

Tripoli Military Cemetery is co-located with Tripoli War Cemetery, within which it comprises Plots 50-52, adjacent to the eastern boundary wall.

The Cemetery is in the Mansura district of Tripoli, 2.5 kilometres west of the city centre. It is located off the western end of Sharia Jamahuriya, close to the major roundabout at Bab Gargaresh.

Access to the War and Military Cemeteries is via the now disused Italian Municipal Christian Cemetery. From the main gate of the municipal cemetery follow the avenue for about 100 metres to the small piazza with a crucifixion scene sculpture and turn left (east). The stepped entrance to the War Cemetery can then be seen 100 metres ahead.

Visiting Information

NOTE: Visitors to Libya may wish to note that a major renovation programme is planned for a number of our cemeteries in the country. Headstones and other features, which have become eroded over time by the harsh climate, are scheduled for replacement. Further details will be made available shortly. We apologise for any inconvenience and we would respectfully ask visitors to be patient with us while this work is ongoing.

Before considering a visit to Libya the Commission strongly recommends that you check the advice given by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office on the travel section of their website:
