Palase

There is no need for many words to describe the beauty of the traditional architecture of a small village with cobbled alleys such as Lukova. Unlike most of the cities in southern Albania, there is no sign of modern architecture in the small village. The locals do their utmost to maintain their traditional style of construction. Small ridges are covered with multicolored flowers almost all year round. As it is characteristic of the Mediterranean climate of the entire region of Himara, there is no lack of olives and citrus in this village. The traditions, cultures and customs of this village are still preserved in traditional music, dances, dressing and delicious traditional dishes. Close to the Saranda city favors this village for contacts and traffic. The Lukoves (Bunec and Caves) beaches are one of the most famous beaches on the Riviera of Albania, stretching from a giant strip of white rocks, several miles long, covered with deep blue water. The beach of Bunec is quiet and somewhat unusual. With the shore of white pebble, it is separated by a stream that descends from the high mountains. The west looks wonderful from the beach of Bunec and the beach is a good alternative for those looking for comfort as apart from the few hotels there is no noise from the nightclubs. The rocks of Lukoves are deep and belong to the Middle Ages. In this Christian village (like all other villages) there is the opportunity to visit the 3 most beautiful churches in the south. One of them is the Shenepremtes church with a distinctive style and architecture. We can not leave out the village of Piqeras, part of the Commune of Lukoves, all paved with concrete slabs, to the "Stone of Sallak", where men and, with stone tiles at the lateral stairs, with iron railings, here also with decorative trees, while preserving the century-old olive of the church, Piqerasi, gains a new contemporary value.
