The Monumental Tombs of Selca e Poshtëme

The Monumental Tombs of “Selca e Poshtëme” (Lower Selca) are 2,400 years old, located 40 km from the modern city of Pogradec. Selca was a town founded by the Illyrian tribe of Desartes in the 6th century BCE. It is thought that Pelion was the residence of the Illyrian king, Klit, located in Selca. The settlement reached its greatest prominence in the 3rd - 4th centuries BCE, when its protective surrounding walls encircled an area of 3 hectares. Five monumental tombs in Ionic style have been excavated from this archaeological site. Four of the carved tombs are located inside the tunnels.

It is 695 m above sea level and accordingly remains temperate and cool even in the warmest summers. At an estimated four million years old, it is also one of the oldest lakes in the world. It too boasts a tremendous variety of fish, some of which are unique to Ohrid. Notable among them is the Belushka, a delicious and highly prized fish, and Koran, which is the most famous and is exclusively found in this lake.
