Not really all that much to see, though the proximity to the main mosque and the Orthodox cathedral makes for a nice swing through them all to reflect on the generally good relations among religious groups in this formerly, officially atheistic country.

a Lovely church, somehow with a very peaceful feeling inside. Not bright and shinny, but authentic. Colours, smell, garden, human size. Open just in the morning.

Built in the 19th century this pretty church was a gift from the Emperor of Austro-Hungary. Not far from the center of Tirana it is worth a quick visit.

Extra-ordinarily old architectural form. Why would you choose to build in a style famous from about 350 A.D.? Great halls are memorable and arresting of the usual thought patterns, that's why! Still works the magic. Give to the old widows outside.
