In a sign of the changes that have taken place in the year since the beginning of the uprising against Muammar Gaddafi, the former leaders' residence now hosts Tripoli's Friday market.
Gaddafi delivered many defiant speeches at his Bab al Azzizya residence but now the secretive sanctuary is home to some of the best deals in the Libyan capital.
Everything from clothes to accordions and heaters can be found, at a site which only a year ago many Libyans were afraid to even drive past.
