Unnamed Road

Himarë has one of the best seaside promenades on the Albanian Riviera, with the coastal Ceraunian Mountains as a dramatic backdrop. The town and nearby villages have long been a center for Albania’s Greek community, which is reflected in the large number of Orthodox churches and the plethora of Greek tavernas. The Castle of Porto Palermo, constructed by the Venetians and located on the bay, is one of the most dramatic and interesting historic sites along the entire length of the Albanian Riviera.
