There really is not much castle left, but what the location has great views, has interesting, rather higgledy-piggledy ruins, and we liked the ethnographic museum. There is not charge for the castle as such,
Amazing view from the castle and history of the Scanderbeg. Also you can stop at the Old bazaar and shop for souvenirs or handmade products especially i remembered Kruja's Shop where the artisans make amazing olive wood crafts like spoons, bowls, nutcrackers etc.
