Known as the "city of one thousand steps" this ancient UNESCO town with steep cobbled streets in a very memorable place. The streets are so steep that one can literally place your foot on the roof top of a house, all of which are made of the same solid grey stone. A well preserved fort overlooks the town. It is a place with a strong mood and a feeling of "time standing still." Also, like to point out Albania is very inexpensive and the people I found terrific!

La ciudad antigua de Gjirokastra fue el lugar de nacimiento de algunos de los albaneses más conocidos de la historia, como el dictador comunista Enver Hoxha o el escritor albanés, Ismail Kadare. Por otro lado, gracias al casco antiguo, la ciudad fue declarada Ciudad-museo durante la época socialista. En 2005, la Unesco la declaró Patrimonio de la Humanidad. Es conocida como la ciudad de las piedras ya que la mayor parte de los tejados de las casas antiguas están cubiertas de piedras. Los atractivos de la ciudad son: El Castillo y su museo de armas, Perderse entre sus callejuelas de empedrados, La Torre del reloj, El Estadio de Fútbol, El Museo Etnográfico, Las Casas Museos Skenduli y Zekate, y disfrutar de la naturaleza y sus alrededores.
