Quorter Of Gorica, Berat

(4.1/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Quorter Of Gorica into our Berat family vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Berat.

  • One of the most historic districts must see in Berat. Full of beautiful Orthodox churches. The atmosphere is different and the people are simple and very kind. Wonderful homes and alleys that leave you breathless. At the foot of a hill, with the river Osum dividing it across town, and two bridges (the old one and wonderful and the new one) is a wonderful and unique place. A must visit!

  • Historically this was the Christian quarter. Now there are some Byzantine churches saved well, but in General, the quarter is not as interesting as mangholim.

  • Gorica............Christian quarter of Berat. White windows, glorious old white washed buildings.........what's not to like? I know there's complaints out there about it being rundown or a bit shabby....  more »
