Take a self-guided tour around the 13th-century remains of Berat Fortress. Located on the banks of the Osum River, the fortress overlooks the town of Berat. The Romans burned the original fort, which has been rebuilt many times since. The haunting ruins cover a large area and, in the castle's glory days, were able to hold a large number of the city's residents. Many of these buildings were Christian churches from the 13th century, with one mosque whose minaret base still stands. You may be carrying the fortress in your pocket: the attraction appears on the back of Albanian 10 lekë coins put in circulation in 1996 and 2000. Our Berat vacation planner makes visiting Berat Fortress and other Berat attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Even people who normally live in feels a bit strange, is interesting. Fun also several souvenir shops, just to see, including the break slowly every inch around if you're going one day I felt I needed.

  • Long Hill can not go. On the territory of the fortress, in the beginning, you can park. Beautiful medieval architecture. Amazing icons in the home of Onuphrius. Narrow streets. Stone houses. and surprisingly, the fortress still live the old timers
