Porto Palermo Fortress

Just outside of Himara is an old triangular fortress that dates back to the days of Ali Pasha. It was built in the early 19th Century as a prison. But now considered as a touristic attraction.

Once you are done touring the castle, you can hop in the water just outside. The Porto Palermo Fortress is on an island that has a patch of sand connecting it to the mainland. This now doubles as a beach, and has a beautiful view of either side of “Panorama Bay.”
