Stop At: Mangalem, Berat, Albania

The unique and original architecture of the houses is assumed to belong mainly to the construction phase of the XVIII-XIX centuries, by combining elements of stone and wood. The compactness of the constructions, their perfect connection to the land where they are located and the more or less identical architectural appearance, make this ensemble one of the most attractive spots in the historic center of Berat.

Stop At: Gorica Bridge, Berat 5001 Albania

As a very important link between the two parts of the city in the XVIII century (1777), according to a note from a book of St. George's church, the "Gorica" bridge was built of stone by the local ruler of Berat, Ahmet Kurt Pasha. In 1880 it was overthrown by numerous Osumi River floods. Frequent interventions in its construction, until late in the 1930s, have greatly transformed the monument from its original construction.
