Lekuresi Castle, Saranda

4.1
#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Saranda
Visit for views over Saranda town and the Ksamil Islands from its perch on a mountain. All that remains of the castle are its ancient walls, but a small restaurant located inside has converted a part of the ruins into a restaurant terrace. From this cafe take in views of the sea and the town below as you sample the traditional cuisine. You may have to approach the bar to order during the busy peak season. Admission to the castle is free and you can roam around the stone walls, but wear appropriate hiking shoes to protect your feet from the brush and rocks. With our online itinerary creator, Saranda attractions like Lekuresi Castle can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Service was lousy, we had to leave as noone came to us after saying they were sending someone for half an hour. Stunning place mind. Absolute corker.
  • For some reason went for a drink and had to leave the place coz they only serve restaurant. View overlooking the city is nice though.
  • Nice view of Saranda city. A must visit place
  • Beautiful panorama around Sarandë, the castle is pretty small but worth a trip.
  • It was nice and quiet in the morning. Great view
