Lezha Castle Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Before you spend the afternoon on the beach in Shengjin, take the short hike up the mountain in Lezha to the castle ruins. There's a breathtaking view of the mountains, villages, and coast. The castle floor is carpeted with grass, sage, caladiums, and stinging nettles. Sheep and goats often graze here. Skanderbeg fought the Turkish invaders here in 1444; the site is much older. If you'd like to visit his tomb, it's in the main square in Lezha and includes the remnants of an ancient fresco. Stroll through the bazaar while you're there.
