    Daily Tour to Petrelë-Zipline

    It is known for its castle and history. In ancient times, Petrelë was known as Petralba, which translated from Greek means “the stone” of “alba,” therefore “the stone of Albanians.” It is called such because the town and its castle are built on a huge stone on top of a small mountain.

    Petrela Castle has a rich history. Initially constructed in the 6th century AD, the present building dates back to the 15th century. During Skanderbeg’s fight against the Ottomans, Petrela Castle was under the command of his sister, Mamica Kastrioti. Today, there is a restaurant inside the castle. The castle offers spectacular views of the Erzen valley, the hills, olive groves, and surrounding mountains.

    The Persqopi settlement can be dated to the second half of the 4th century BC. No ancient author mentions it by its current Perqopi name. It is thought to have been inhabited by the Illyrian tribe of the Parthini. At 590 m over the level of the sea, its strategic position facilitated the control of a large territory of the roads around the mountain. Its fortifying wall is one of the best preserved in Albanian territory and is 60 m long and 7 m high.

    The Bride’s Tomb is situated in Mullet Village, close to Maxhara Church.

    It is in the middle of a field and stands in very good conditions. The legend says that a bride was killed there on her wedding day. Two rival groups were encountered in this place and started shooting. The convoy with a bride was passing at that moment on that way. She was shot accidentally and died there. In that place, the villagers built this monument called the Bride’s Tomb. Given the function similar to the tombs of the Ottoman period, it is thought that it may belong to the century. XVII.

    Zipline in Petrela is the first professional Zipline in Albania and the longest one in the region, at 1250 m. offers an amazing view of Petrela Castle and the Erzeni River;
