A US Air Force Plane in Gjirokastra

Gjirokastra's Ottoman old town with its grey slate roofed houses is beautiful, especially from the top of the city's citadel. The citadel or Gjirokastra Castle as it's called, is now a museum well worth visiting to see the United States Air Force plane which was captured in Tirana in the 50s. The views of the surrounding mountains and the valley below are spectacular.
