Butrint Park is an archaeological museum-reserve in southern Albania near Saranda, near the border with Greece. The national park is located on the shore of the lake of the same name, two kilometers from the Ionian Sea, opposite the island of Corfu. The majestic ruins of Albanian, Roman and Greek culture are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Nearby is a modern Albanian village called Butrinti.
Near the resort town of Saranda rises the ancient fortress of Lekursi, built in 1537 by Suleiman the Magnificent. From the Ottoman fortress to the present, fragments of walls and two bastions have survived. The castle currently houses a restaurant with an observation deck where you can enjoy a beautiful view from the ruins. From the height of the fortress walls and the tower of the building offers a beautiful view of the surrounding: the island of Corfu, Lake Butrint, the valley of the river Bystrica, the city of Saranda and, of course, the Ionian Sea.
