National Park
“The ancient ruins of Butrint famed for their size, beauty and tranquility are located approximately 18 km from Saranda. Butrint has a special atmosphere created by a combination of archaeology, monuments and nature in the Mediterranean. Butrint was officially recognized a UNESCO world heritage site in 1992. This recognition affirms its ancient and archeological appeal that has defied the forces of nature to preserve antiques that dates back to over 50,000 years ago. As a visitor to world recognized heritage site, you do not only get the rare chance of experiencing the ancient cultures, monuments, and civilizations but also enjoy the serene environment.”

Establishment
“One of the most impressive fortification works in Europe. It is the first thing to see as the ferry approaches Corfu. It stands on the eastern side of the town, on a rocky peninsula that gets into the sea. This fortress was built to protect the town from enemies and pirates. On the eastern side of the fortress, there is a flatland, used today for cultural events in summer. In this flat square, there is the church of Saint George, built by the Venetians as an ancient temple. This is actually the only church in Greece that has been constructed according to the Doric style. The highest point of the fortress needs about 20 minutes walking up to a tall clock tower.”
