Borsh Castle & Mosque

Castle and Mosque in Sarandë

The castle dates from the 3rd-4th century B.C. It was known as the Sopot Castle in the Middle Ages, and was listed in the memoirs of the Byzantine Emperor, daughter of Alexios I Komnenos, Anna Komnenos as early as 1192. In the 18th century, during the rule of Ali Pasha, a mosque was added to the castle, which has remained well preserved to this day, missing only one of its original minarets.
