An intact Ottoman tower house, Zekate House is an example of a combination of Turkish and Albanian design sensibilities. You must request access to the house at the tourist office in the center of town, and be sure to ask for information on the attraction in English. A neighbor next door to the attraction keeps the key and lets you into the space. On the ground floor is a kitchen and a cistern. Take the central staircase to the family rooms and the third-floor reception room. The latter is covered in frescoes from ceiling to floor and lined with sofas in traditional Balkan style.

Zekate House Reviews
Mooi om een huis uit die tijd van binnen te zien. Met kinderen ook fijn dat dit op eigen gelegenheid kan zonder gids, zodat je alles op je eigen tempo kan doen. De entree is 200 lek per volwassene. more »Beautiful to see a house from that time inside. With kids also nice that this can be done without a guide, so you can do everything at your own pace. The entrance is 200 leak per adult.
Todella hyvä opastus ja sukellus 1700-luvun varakkaiden asumiseen/ asumistasoon ja tapakulttuuriin Gjironissa. Mielenkiintoiset ratkaisut saniteetti- ja vesijärjestelmissä more »Really good guidance and diving in the 1700 century to the wealthy housing/housing level and the way to culture in Gjironi. Interesting solutions for sanitary and water systems
Great place to visit an authentic Ottoman house. There is also a small cafe beside the house with a great view over Gjokaster, which is run by the friendly owners of the house.
Beautiful view from the castel
