For the city in Iran with the same Arabic name, see Zavareh
The settlement was first mentioned by the traveller al-Tidjani in the years 1306-1309 as Zwara al-saghirah
In a Catalan sailing manual (1375) it was called as Punta dar Zoyara. The town is mentioned by Leo Africanus
in the 16th century. It later served as the western outpost of Italian Libya
(1912–43), being the terminus of the now-defunct Italian Libya Railway
from Tripoli 105 kilometres (65 mi) to the east. Its artificial harbour shelters a motorized fishing fleet. Cereals, dates, and esparto
grass (used to make cordage, shoes, and paper) are local products.
It was in 1973 in Zuwara that Muammar Gaddafi
first proclaimed the Libyan "Cultural Revolution".
