Quorter Of Gorica, Berat

3.9
#3 of 8 in Things to do in Berat
Rising up from the banks of the Osum River, Quorter Of Gorica begs to be explored on foot. The ancient quarter is a small grouping of old homes and buildings on the side of hill. They are notable for their half-whitewashed stone walls and many windows facing the river. Two churches in the area are worth exploring, but they must be unlocked, so if you don't find the keeper at the first church you visit, move on to the next, where he is most likely unlocking the door for other guests. Cross the Gorice Bridge to reach the area. Near the bridge you'll find restaurants with inexpensive traditional food served in generous portions. A steep hike uphill leads you to the fortress near the top of the hill overlooking this section of town. There is a fee to enter the fortress.

    You can't go to Albania without visiting this wonderful neighborhood. Strolling, you can well understand why it is called "the town of a thousand Windows" kind of night, it's like getting into a fairy tale. It's a charm that takes your breath away.

    Gorica district South of the Osam river flowing through the streets of the historic centres of Berat. It was hard to climb the slope of stone-paved road in a suitcase had stayed in the area of Gorica. Look from Gorica, a traditional building of the Osam River picture to the sight. Especially at night was beautiful. By the way it was dark at night.

Where to stay in Berat

Berat doesn’t experience a large number of tourists, as reflected in the limited accommodation choices. Still, you can find inexpensive hostels and higher-end hotels in decent locations. The town’s main attraction is the well-preserved Ottoman center, and no matter where you stay, you won’t be a far walk. Be prepared to conquer some hills, though: Berat's hub lies in the valley between two steep hills, where most of the accommodations are.
