  • A crossroads leading to the Castle, made of little shops, bars and small restaurants. Items for sale are not Chinoiserie (thankfully), but local products such as blouses, dresses or ricamante tablecloths, costume jewellery, wooden objects, identical to what is found in other Albanian cities, all very very low. Advisable.

Where to stay in Gjirokaster

As a World Heritage Site, Gjirokaster attracts a fair number of tourists. However, there are a limited number of hotels, and even fewer hostels. The town is divided into two sections: the atmospheric old town is up on a hill, and the newer part is down below in the valley. Most of the historical attractions lie in the old town; staying here puts you within easy reach and saves you a daily walk or taxi ride up and down the hill.
