You will start your tour by visiting UNESCO World Heritage Site Berat. Steeped with a rich history, you’ll soon discover why everyone loves it.
Berati 2,500 years-old, is the pride of Albanian architecture. The city forms a wonderful combination of eastern and western cultures, costumes, traditions and outlook. Inside the castle, there were built churches with precious frescos and icons. Here we will visit the Onufri Iconographic Museum. Today Onufri’s spectacular paintings are displayed along with the church’s beautifully gilded iconostasis of 19 century,
Nowadays, the castle is considered unique by the fact that people continue to live inside of it. The three major neighborhoods of the old city are Mangalemi, Gorica, and Kala (Castle), where the castle itself is located.
