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.

  • I was expecting an old castle, however it turned out to be a restaurant surrounded with the castle wall. However the castle is located on the hill and you get a nice view, so worth visiting.  more »
  • If Castles are your thing, and you have access to a car, then dinner here might be right up your street (not least as a romantic evening). However, if you walking, (caution!) its a steep climb up a mo...  more »

  • The view from the castle at the top of the mountain is amazing. 360 degrees of magical scenery. There are 2 restaurants in the castle. If you are in Saranda then you have to visit the Lëkurësi Castle. Do it at daytime and nighttime, the scenary changes alot from day to night time. I almost forgot to mention, there is live music and entertainment every night at the restaurant. The picture isn't mine, it's borrowed. But it's a picture of a part of the view that i mentioned. Hope you enjoy your trip to the castle.
  • It was such a nice time to be there for this summer. I'm thankful to all of your team . For my opinion this it was my best place that a have visited in a while . I recommend everyone who is a couple to go there and to treat his self like staying in kingdom. Thanks s lot.
  • Even that the prices are high you can't ever miss the view from there in the afternoon or the sunset step by step. 5 star time u spend there especially for 1st timers
  • Went there with a group and had a great time. The view is amazing, it was really busy, which meant the service was understandably slower but they did their best. The food let the place down a little. I went for the chefs special and meat was really tough. There was local, live music which was great. I would suggest to go there before the sunset and enjoy it, it's spectacular.
  • I had my wedding ceremony and reception in this beautiful castle. The staff was very polite. The food was fab. Amazing view and excellent customer service. I would highly recommend this place
