Preza Castle reviews
This castle is near Tirana and you can enjoy there even a meal or a coffee. If you want you can make a picnic in the large area. The fortress is nice and the strange thing is that there is a mosque... more »
Not much to the castle, but is interesting. I wandered in, no one else there. View is tremendous over Rinas and Tirana and across to Kruje. Restaurant below the castle is excellent. Negotiate a rate..... more »
Great view! A perfect place to have a coffee or a refreshing drink if you are passing by from the airport.
Very nice spot near Tirana. You got a beautiful view of the city from an unusual point of view.
