Nalut (sometimes Lalút) (Arabic: ) is the capital of the Nalut District in Libya. Nalut lies approximately halfway between Tripoli and Ghadames, at the western end of the Nafusa Mountains coastal range, in the Tripolitania region.
The town is a long-time Berber community and a cultural centre for them, with a festival held in the spring to revive and promote the local culture, traditions, industries and art of the Amazigh people.
The name Nalut and its alternate Lalut may derive from the pagan Berber goddess of springs, Tala. As Nalut is only 60 km from the Tunisian border and lies close to some oases it played an important part in the caravan trade.
Nalut is home to the Ksar Nalut ? , which is a granary fortified by a ksour (castle). The facility has been abandoned but is a tourist destination. The fortress was a communal building where the local families could store their grain in times of conflict.
A national reconciliation conference for the factions in the Libyan Civil War was held in Nalut in September 2016.
