Berat, known as the “City of One Over One Windows”, is a historic city in Albania, located in the heart of the country’s lush landscape.  2,400-year-old city, pride of Albanian architecture, wealth of culture and symbol of religious coexistence, has been proven in the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008.

Berat Castle is a historical monument where civilizations overlap and history finds tangible evidence from antiquity to the end of the Ottoman period. Its foundations date back to IV century BC, and archaeological traces can be found from the Illyrian, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman eras. Within the castle, which has an area of almost 10 hectares and a perimeter of 1400 meters,architecture of the houses dates from the Ottoman period of XVIII and XIX centuries. As well, there are 12 churches, some of them with elaborate frescoes, and the ruins of two medieval mosques.

Mangalem Quarter
The Mangalem Quarter, located at the foot of Berat's hilltop castle, is the city's most representative area for Ottoman-period architecture. The majority of the quarter's original buildings (from XVIII and XIX centuries) still have antique decorations and furniture from that era. Mangalem is an excellent example of an inclining landscape that has organically created a unique slope overlooking the town known as "the city of a thousand windows".

Gorica Bridge
Without a doubt, the Gorica Bridge is considered the symbol of Berat and is one of Albania’s treasures of historical and cultural heritage. Its construction, by local ruler Ahmet Kurt Pasha, was completed in 1777-1778. It is 127 meters long and reaches a height of 10 meters, making it one of the largest bridges of the time and one of the few bridges still in use from that era.

Saint Michael's Church
A landmark with immense significance, Saint Michael's Church, which dates back to the 14th century and is built on a rock, is located in the Mangalem quarter in the castle's southern part. This orthodox church demonstrates the mastery of a Byzantine masonry technique that consists of combining rows of bricks with rows of stone. The position of this church dominates the historical part and is one of the most picturesque churches in Albania
