Porto Palermo

The most exclusive beach not only of Qeparo but also of all the Riviera, is that of Porto Palermo, where they merge at the same point in fantastic sea, nature and history. As soon as it appears before your eyes this shore looks like the hill is relaxing in the sea, giving it over to the two peninsulas, that of Panormi and Palermo. In this tiny tectonic bay, on the island, is one of the most well-known Kalate in Albania. The castle is located on the peninsula of Palermo about 50 m from the shore, where a narrow and narrow strip is formed between it and the peninsula to realize a ground connection with it. The castle has triangular shape with three powerful bastions around the corner. On the sea side, between two bastions, a trapezoidal surface is surrounded by frenzed walls. It is all built about two centuries ago by Ali Pashai of Ioannina as one of its strategic points. Literary works are alleged to have been constructed as a gift for one of his wife Vasiliqine and has become the subject of singing and dancing in Laberise. Once there was a stone slab where it was written: "I Pashai i Madh, Ali I built this fortress." Some historical documents claim that the castle was designed by a French architect on the ruins of a Venetian tower. However, these data do not diminish the beauty and history that it carries on itself. Around 300 meters from the castle, beside the street is the famous church built by Ali Pashe Tepelena personally for Vasiliqine. This symbolic gift was highly precious to Ali Pasha. The church was outside the bedracks and it could be attacked by its enemies. It is said that its construction Pasha of Janine entrusted it to an Italian architect who finished it in a short time. A beautiful destination to visit is also the Cave of Porto Palermo, which together with the castles and churches are treasured treasures for the most beautiful coastline of our country.
