Tirana Castle (Kalaja Tiranes)

Also known at the Fortress of Justinian, a name that’s as equally misleading, all that remains of this former military stronghold dating from some time between the 4th and 6th centuries AD are a short section of defensive wall and some of the original foundations that have been incorporated into the modern pedestrian street it can be found along. Of possible interest is the fact that the castle remains mark the point from which today’s city is generally believed to have started growing.
