Take a self-guided tour around the 13th-century remains of Berat Castle. Located on the banks of the Osum River, the fortress overlooks the town of Berat. The Romans burned the original fort, which has been rebuilt many times since. The haunting ruins cover a large area and, in the castle's glory days, were able to hold a large number of the city's residents. Many of these buildings were Christian churches from the 13th century, with one mosque whose minaret base still stands. You may be carrying the fortress in your pocket: the attraction appears on the back of Albanian 10 lekë coins put in circulation in 1996 and 2000.

I was born there and every time I visit it I am fascinated as it would be the first time seeing the castle, the views of the mountains and the river Osumi. more »
13th century castle that is still home to multiple families. Definitely worth the visit and there are multiple locations in which a drink and bite to eat can be had. more »
If you visit Berat then you should definitely visit Berat Castle. Inside the castle there is very nice village full of traditions houses and a few small restaurants and cafes not overly touristic. You can have a walk and enjoy the peaceful scenery and the wonderful view of the surrounding nature
