Lekuresi Castle, Saranda

3.9
Castle · Tourist Spot
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. Make Lekuresi Castle a part of your Saranda vacation plans using our Saranda sightseeing tool.

  • Long walk up, views were good though. Castle itself is not that great compared to others in the region - pretty much just a restaurant. Similar views and a better "ancient" experience at the monastery of the 40 saints!
  • The view is amazing and dramatic, the food not so good you can find better restaurants. But the view makes the food taste a bit better tho. The waiters is very kind. They had even a live Albanian performance! You should visit the place when the sun is going down.
