City of Stone
Along with the central Albanian town of Berat, Gjirokastra serves as a striking World Heritage Site known for its Ottoman architecture. Located in Southern Albania, down in the Drinos River valley, this town boasts hundreds of 17th-century homes, which represent a mix of local and Ottoman styles. They city also hosts several 18th-century religious sites. Tourists are also drawn to this town, which is over 2,000 years old, for its castle, bazaar, and limestone and shale roads. Nature lovers soak up views of the valley and the more literary-inclined travelers love exploring the birthplace of author Ismail Kadare. With our international travel planner, Albania vacations can be built around trips to Gjirokaster and other destinations in Albania.
