Lekuresi Castle, Saranda

(3.7/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our custom trip planner, Saranda attractions like Lekuresi Castle can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Most (or all) of it has been restored / renovated but it's a very pleasant place to visit and just hang out for a bit. Great views of the surrounding area.  more »
  • We took a taxi up to the Castle and decided time with the same driver to download at night. Can be difficult to get hold of a car down again. Very nice area and great views! We visited the castle in the evening for a dinner at the restaurant. Great value and great service. Funny entertainment with music and dance in the evening too, really great atmosphere. Recommends to time your visit with the sunset, the incredibly beautiful!
