  • Site between Himara and Saranda, owes its name to Italian soldiers who fought here during World War II. It is a fortress located on a small peninsula bordered by the Ionian Sea, also called the toll of Ali Pasche Tepelena. Triangular in shape, it has three corner towers and was built in 1818, as a strategic point for controlling the Ottoman Turks and to guard its treasures. Was used by King Zog and the Italians as a prison, while under the dictatorship of Hoxha became a military zone. Currently is a tourist destination, both for its beauty as for the beautiful view.

  • The castle is very cute entry costs 100 lek. There is a beautiful view and a visit is really short Council inquire prior to entry on what is the past of the Castle. The Creek is very pretty, the sea very nice as some entire Albanian coast on the seabed, however there are several scrap and waste and the afternoon at sea becomes dirty so I wouldn't do a trip on purpose when the sea there are other beautiful bays on the coast. The restaurant did not try but a water cost 250lek while the couch 700lek (I had read cost less but the kind claimed to no). Overall 3su5.

  • The beach is lovely and warm sea, protected in the Creek. The castle is worth a visit, the Interior a bit bare but curious due to its conformation, the terrace just wonderful! For 100 leak (less than a euro) is not to be missed!
