Qasr Al-Haj. Jebel Nafus. Libya. View inside the wonderfully preserved and completely enclosed circular fortified Berber granary in the village of Qasr Al Haj. Dating from the 12th century the spectacular granary was built as a communal storehouse to hoard and protect the critical crops of every local family. The 114 cave like storage pens are sealed with doors made of palm tree trunks and the granary is still being used today.
