The Monastery of Saint Mary in Pojan is located within the complex of the Apollonia Archaeological Park. It was built in the 13th century CE. By the end of antiquity, Apollonia was largely depopulated, hosting a small Christian community that built this monastery on a hill, probably the site of the old city. Byzantine Emperor Andronicus Paleologus the Second reconstructed it. The chapel was built in the Byzantine style. The Monastery of Saint Mary is one of the most beautiful structures of this kind in Albania.
Gurëzeza is located near the modern town of Cakran, dominating the plain of Vjosa and offering visitors a view which extends to the Karaburun peninsula and the island of Sazan in the bay of Vlora. The partially preserved walls cover an expansive area of over 15 hectares. Settlements of the site appear divided into three distinct phases: the Protourban, Urban and Late Antiquity periods. Several important coin hoards were found in the vicinity of this site, one with about 2,000 bronze coins from Apollonia and Epirus.
First constructed in 1964, Hotel Fieri originally served political delegates, working groups and sports teams that visited the city of Fier. After a total renovation in 2009, the hotel is now a modern hotel with a convenient location that caters to business travelers and tourists alike. It is close to the ocean and convenient to nearby archaeological sites, such as the Illyrian ruins at Apollonia where the first emperor Augustus once studied in 44BCE. Well-appointed rooms and convenient meeting facilities mesh well with our Mediterranean restaurant and comfortable bar.
