Berat Castle

Local name: Kalaja e Beratit

The Roman fortress of Albanorum rises above the picturesque city of Berat. There are also residential houses on its territory. There is also a small museum of the icon painter Onufry. The complex of the old town in Berat together with the castle are inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

The castle was built in the 2nd century BC by the Romans on the site of the Illyrian fortress. It was rebuilt by the Turks, who in 1417 took the city and ruled it until the 20th century. Today, the fortress is primarily high, visible from anywhere in the valley, the walls.

Within them are residential houses. Their tenants run souvenir shops and guide the fortress. You can also see a museum of icons dedicated to the memory of the monk Onufry in the 16th century.
