  • Very well preserved Castle from the Ottoman period made by Ali Pasha, with the following particularities. 1. inside it has a chapel Orthodox despite having been built by a Pasha. 2. formerly there existed Byzantine and Venetian fortresses. 3. at the time of Enver Hoxha worked there a military destamento and an arsenal.

  • ... on the drive along the coast from Vlorë to Sarandë (= dream Street!). The object: An almost entirely preserved Turkish fortress from the early 19th century. By Turks in order given, created by French and British, she should prevent the looming collapse of the Ottoman Empire. Great location of the bastion on a peninsula - and there is ' much to discover indeed'. First, there is the fortress itself, from whose walls you have wonderful views of the coast and the offshore islands (up to Kerkyra). There is a maze of corridors and Casemates inside the fortress. Everything is fully preserved and also freely accessible. The rest was pleasant. A tourist bus was just awesome and we were the only visitors during our approximately 1-hour presence - but it was also pre-season. The pleasure was probably only is admission free.

  • It's the castle of Ali Pashë Tepelena located in a great location. It's the only castle that still stands and it wasn't damaged a lot from the time it was built ...it has a very unique Bysanthin style..
  • Very preserved and relatively new castle. I liked it. The guide was very friendly and wise
  • A place that is still untouched becaused was neas a military base , the story about the castle is awesome, the place , the deep blue of the sea, everything is just unik, and no word to describe the beauty
  • Great place for swimming and history
  • This castle is one of the most beautiful and interesting attractions in Albania, not only for it's specific position, in middle of a small peninsula, but also of it's romantic story. It is sorrounded by thousands and different colorful woods, which give it a really special view. I would absolutely rate it as a 5 🌟, even tho sadly the government must do more to protect this place and help the tourism in this attraction.
