Visit for views over Saranda town and the Ksamil Islands from its perch on a mountain. All that remains of the castle are its ancient walls, but a small restaurant located inside has converted a part of the ruins into a restaurant terrace. From this cafe take in views of the sea and the town below as you sample the traditional cuisine. You may have to approach the bar to order during the busy peak season. Admission to the castle is free and you can roam around the stone walls, but wear appropriate hiking shoes to protect your feet from the brush and rocks.

Amazing views. We came here on cruise ship excursion and were amazed. Beautiful views. Be sure to get picture with guy just inside gate. Printed in a few minutes and a lovely souvenir of albania for just a few euro. A bargain compared to cruise ship pictures.
