Qeparo

Qeparoi has the privilege of being called different and the "Kapedan Village" as the men of this educated and militant village struggled with flesh and soul against the Ottoman invaders. As the village does not date more than 1000 years ago. It was mentioned for the first time in Turkish records of 1551, but it is claimed to be a 3000-year-old inhabited area. The village lies on a hill around 300-400 meters high, at the foot of which extends a fantastic valley, planted with many years old olive trees and with citrus trees, whose winds accompany all the twisted path on the seashore. Some of the Albanian poets consider a place blessed by God. On the top of the hill is the Karos castle, built with a simple, two-phase, untreated stone technique that belongs to the bronze and iron period. The hill is surrounded by 5 walls that are built with large stones, though without a connecting system, are carefully set up by creating the right mixing. The affinity with the sea and the appropriate area for farming and livestock has made Karos for many years a residential center as well as fortified to protect the coastline against the attacks. In addition to the Kalos of Karos, in Qeparo is the Church and Monastery of Shen Dhimitri as well as the Church of St. Spiridhoni located above the village. Its beaches are the right choice to enjoy the summer season, which offers nothing less than the other amazing beaches on the Riviera.
