Lekuresi Castle, Saranda

(220+ reviews on the web)
Castle Tourist Spot
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.

  • This place will be always special to me and will be close to my heart. When I married my albanian husband, who is from Saranda the first time he took me up here I fell in love again and our wedding ceremony was here too.This place has it all, the endless blue ocean,the view of the city from the top and the mountains at your back and you are experiencing it all. For extra romantic feeling : visit the place during sunset. Must see when you visit Saranda.
  • Stunning views, restaurant is meant to be amazing however unfortunately we had already eaten.
  • Very beautiful
  • Great view!
  • Beautiful castle perched where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Bay of Sarande and the coast of Corfu. In the evening it turns into a very romantic little setup with the help of city lights overhead view and live music with local artists ... all this tranquility you can have in June and then in the off-season. In August .... it's a delirio......ma is fine too! P.s. the restaurant prices are higher than average.
