  • Despite the fact that this church was built recently to visit her worth. Look at the unusual architecture. The Interior too beautiful. Perhaps this is one of the two landmarks of Tirana (second monument of Skanderbeg) speaking of which that Word can be written without quotation marks. The existence of this church is particularly surprising in the traditionally Muslim country.
