Lezhë City Guide

Lezhë is a municipality and a town in northwestern Albania.

The city is near to the region’s most majestic lagoons, those of Kune-Vain and Patok, and some of the most unique, rocky beaches in Lezha surround the ancient area.

Lezhë is home to the mausoleum of Skanderbeg,or Gjergj Kastrioti  a national hero whose strategic skill held the Ottoman Empire at bay in the 1400s. When he died of malaria in 1468 he was buried in Lezhë’s cathedral.

Growth in the Albanian gastronomic culture began here in the last decade, with several world-famous farm-to-table and fine dining restaurants serving the most up-to-date traditional cuisine in the country.
