Climb to the top of Gjirokastra Castle

Gjirokastra Castle is undoubtedly one of the most magnificent castles in Albania and one of the largest in the Balkan region, offering a breathtaking view of the valley. The castle, named after Princess Argjiro, who refused to surrender to the Ottoman invaders and leapt to her death, sits majestically on top of a hill making it a unique place you would not want to miss. Visiting the premises and all the attractions of the castle, admiring from above the "stone city" that seems to be hand-embroidered is a must-have experience during your stay in Gjirokastër.
