  • A bit dirty surroundings but the castle itself is rather interesting: well preserved, information cards and some pictures on the walls, and great view.  more »
  • We find out this place on our way from Ksamil to Himare. Very nice guide welcomed us and talk about history of this place. It was very nice and helpful.  more »
  • This is one of the best sea view castle of Albania. Is very silent and beautiful on top of it and during summer its a little crowded since is allowed to have a bath in the surroundings.
  • The fortress is an interesting historical artifact, however information inside about the object is limited. The rooms of fortress are hollow, however the views from the top are amazing. Its worth a visit for sure. There is a beach with very food infrastructure, and crystal clear water. Very beautiful place for relaxation and a bit of history learning :)
