Business Description:

“The Karaburun Peninsula is that part of the Vlora coast, where tourism can find the most suitable terrain to develop. 25 km away from Vlora city, on the land road, the Karaburun Peninsula offers surprises in every season for anyone visiting it. Tourist agencies apply not only trips along this massif, but also overnight holidays, to the beaches located there. Such trips are organized mainly during the summer season, and are intended to extend throughout the year.

The natural landscape, intertwined with the historic one, makes it a relief where the visitor can surprise himself immensely. The rugged coastline, the small meadows that go down to the water line, the many and hidden bays, the virgin beaches, are some of the elements that almost do not find anywhere else on the Albanian coast. The peninsula forms a large and gentle bow that picks up a large, thumbfoot, stretched hand. It divides the sea bay of Vlora from Otranto’s Channel and has a length of about 15 km, with a latitude up to 4.5 km. On the northwestern side of Karaburun (in Turkish, black tongue), is located the Cape of Spirulina, the westernmost point of Albania. At the top of this massif, there are three peaks, that of Kores 826 meters above sea level, as well as Dafina and Ilqes, respectively 732 and 687 meters. The western part is rocky and vertically fragmented, with caves, coves, bays and small beaches. Here are the small beach of Dafa, the coast of Bitri, the Cave of Panaia. Despite this, in the eastern part of the peninsula that looks out of Vlora bay, the coast is more formed and less rugged. The Karaburun Massif, in its entirety, is poor in vegetation, but rich in pastures. In its lower and narrowest part, there is the plateau of Ravenna, a well-known livestock center in the south of the country, used by the Dukat villagers to breed mothers. From the geological point of view, the Karaburun massif is made up of paleogenic limestone, which has been used since ancient times for the production of marble. The quality of this product differs from that of other areas of Albania. Lack of vegetation and surface waters have made the peninsula uninhabitable.”

Kalaja e Kanines

Kanine Vlore Albania

Business Description:

“The canyon of Kanin is located 6 km from the city of Vlora. This fortress was mentioned since the IV century. However, traces have been discovered since the Illyrian period. It is believed that it was built since the III century. The later traces are those of Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish periods. The castle was rebuilt by Justinian in the 5th century and repaired by Sultan Sulejmani in 1531. The castle rises atop a hill with a height of 380 meters above sea level. It has an area of ​​3.6 hectares. From here opens a beautiful view towards Vlora and its bay.

In the middle of the Vlora bay, high mountains approach to the shore, dividing it into two parts. In this area, slightly drained in the depths, a 379 m high hill is built, where the ruins of an old city, that of Kanin, lie. Here, the valley of the Vlora River is extended to the shadow of the hill, thus facilitating the connection of the coastal area with the hinterland. This is the most important factor, since south the mountains gain high altitude, while with the north the distance between the coast and the valley of the Vlora River rises quite rapidly. These are the conditions that determine the strategic importance of Kanin, as well as the crossing from the southern part to the north (and vice versa), as well as to the connection of the Vlora River Trees with the Gulf of Vlora. On the other hand, the hills around it create good conditions for the development of livestock, while in the east there are quite large and suitable agricultural lands, thus complementing the strategic and economic position.

The above conditions have influenced in this place since the ancient times, to give birth to a fortified center, whose life lasts almost uninterrupted until the last century. Of course, the role of this center has not always been the same, so it has had a first-rate role or has been dependent on other centers in function of the socio-economic conditions of the respective periods. In addition to the strategic and economic conditions, the country also fulfills the other requirements needed for the establishment of a fortified center: communication, drinking water, stone construction and natural protection.
