About Irmajit Castle

Located approximately 17 km from Gramsh, the Irmajit Castle sits comfortably near the town of Tunja, 980 meters above sea level.  The castle is known throughout history as the "Castle of Kadrionit."  The area was founded as an Illyrian settlement about 2,400 years ago (~380 B.C.E.).  This was confirmed by archeological discoveries in the area.  The remains of the castle are a simple 25 meters of stone that take the shape of an "L."  The positioning of the castle was crucial in early times as it allowed for residents to overlook the towns of present day Gramsh, Lushnje, Berat and the Adriatic Sea.  Today, in addition to the remaining stone structure, the area is surrounded by an Oak forrest and natural beauty.
