Laying in the historical region of southern Albania, it is the capital of Gjirokastër County. Its old town is inscribed on the World Heritage List as a rare example of a well-preserved Ottoman town, built by farmers of large estate. Gjirokastra is located in a valley between the “Gjerë” mountains and the “Drino River”. The city is overlooked by the “Argjiro”Castle. This “city of a thousand steps” comprises hundreds of Ottoman-style tower houses with distinctive stone roofs, wooden balconies and whitewashed stone walls.
