Hop into a 4x4 vehicle for a drive to the famous Lekuresi Castle. The castle, built in 1537 by Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, is located on a strategic hill overlooking the town of Saranda. Great views of Corfu and Ksamil islands dominate the landscape.
Continue with a drive out of town to the Foinike ruins.
Phoenice (also called Phoenike or Φοινίκη in Greek) was the capital of the Greek tribe of the Chaonians and was once the wealthiest city in the Epirus. Due to its strategic location and economic development the city played an important strategic role from a political and administrative perspective.
Under the Byzantine influence in the 5th and 6th centuries more religious buildings were erected, including a baptistery and a basilica and fortifications were built on the adjacent hill. After the 6th century the city got in decline when the urban city was moved to nearby Mesopotam.
