Castle of Lekures

admin's picture
This castle is located on a strategic hill overlooking the town of Saranda. From here it is possible to see the whole town as well as the islands of Ksamil. The castle of Lëkurs was built in the XVI century. It is thought that it was built on 1537 by Sultan Suleyman who attacked Corfu and needed to control the harbor of Saranda and the road that connected it with Butrint.

The castle is built on the ruins of Lëkurs village. It has a square shape with two round towers on its north western and south eastern corners. To climb up to the castle, visitors need to leave the main road on Qafë Gjashtë and to go up the town hill from the other side of the town. On the ruins of the old castle, tourists can enjoy a meal in a local restaurant which is built in the same style and with similarities with the castle.
