Our Jeep tour starts with a 10-minute drive to the Castle of Lekursi.
Lekursi Castle was built in 1537 by the Ottoman Empire in a commanding position above the city of Saranda from where it could protect the whole region around. For modern day visitors this also has the strategic advantage of making it a breathtaking spot for photos, including great views of Corfu and Ksamil islands, and making it a must see on your visit to Saranda.
