Himara Castle

While this historic hilltop castle might be in ruins, that doesn’t mean people can’t enjoy stunning views of the sea it provides.

About

Well known for its long, white sand beaches, the resort town of Himara is watched over by a historic castle. Standing on the site since the Bronze Age, and updated over the centuries, the castle is now in an unusual state of decay. Along with the ruins of the fortification are the ruins of the homes it once protected, crumbling churches with faded frescoes, and alongside it all, a handful of locals who still live here, enjoying the superb sea views the site offers.
