The Elbasan Castle / Kalaja E Elbasanit

The Elbasan Castle, along with the surrounding walls, points to the military importance of the city of Elbasan in the early Ottoman period. The southern wall, more or less complete, attests to the size and strength of the fortifications, as well as a part of Roman and Byzantine materials that were used during the reconstruction of Mehmet II , can be clearly seen on the foundations of the south western tower. This castle had 26 towers equidistant from each other, throughout the wall of 9 m height. This fortress includes a part of Via Egnatia passing through it.

People of the castle

They practiced all the crafts. There are many people of the castle that can be respected. Robert, with his popular culture, confuses us with no end.

I fly. Pija has succeeded. It’s a nocturnal leap open, where the noise of the generator has long been dormant. It’s a summer day of 2007.
