    Berat Castle

    This castle is the pride and joy of the city of Berat. It’s courtyard offers spectacular views of the city and the valley below. Berat Castle is certainly one of the most beautiful in Albania, if not the most beautiful of them all! The castle sustains the lives of its inhabitants, a life that is perhaps as isolated as it is privileged from this position atop the city.
