Tirana Mosaic

Thought by many to be the remains of a Byzantine-era Roman villa built on this site in the 3rd Century AD and uncovered in 1972, this small but recommended attraction features not only some well preserved mosaic floors as the name suggests but also a collection of beautiful carved stones complete with religious motifs that have led some to believe the original building that stood here was in fact a church. The jury is still out, and for the average visitor the debate is of little importance. Well worth an hour or so of anyone’s time, despite the lack of explanations in English and the fact that it’s a notoriously difficult place to find. Keep an eye out for Hallall pizzeria at the northern end of the street and walk another 100 metres.
