Tirana

Tanners' Bridge

  Rr. George W. Bush     more than a year ago
This elegant Ottoman stone footbridge once served as the main connection between Tirana and the highlands to the east. It was used to get agricultural produce and livestock across the Lana River to the markets and sits in the traditional area of skinners and leather workers. The Lana was rerouted in the 1930s and the bridge was neglected, eventually becoming a rubbish tip. It’s now restored to its former glory and is used by pedestrians again.
