Butrint: Sinking ruins of Albania

Butrint: Sinking ruins of Albania

Former communist state preserves world-class hike as nature encroaches

Sheena Rossiter / sheena@vueweekly.com
The lush overgrowth and pooling water around the old walls is evidence of nature's persistence. Butrint is sinking, and its UNESCO world-heritage-site protection status won't do anything to help pull it up out of the ground.

Seventeen years after the fall of Ramiz Alia's communist regime, the slowly sinking archaeological site on Albania's coast—considered at risk since 1997—is an impressive attraction. It gives visitors some insight into the rich ancient heritage of Albania's southern county of Vlorë—a stark contrast to the images most are used to associating with the country: its recent war-torn, restrictive communist history.

The ruins reveal a broad range of influences, showing signs of its time as a Greek colony, a Roman city, a bishopric, the Byzantine administration and a brief occupation by the Venetians. Only two miles from Greece's popular tourist destination of Corfu, the national park is easily accessible by ferry from Corfu Town's port to the Albanian port of Sarandë. It's only a half-hour to 45-minute boat ride from Greek to Albanian shores, costing about €15 (approximately $24 CDN) for a return trip. However, Albania being one of the few European countries left out of the golden ring of stars in the European Union, all tourists are required to pay a visa entry fee of €10 ($16 CDN). There's no charge if you plan to come and go from the country within a day. For holders of non-EU passports, going though Greek customs and then Albanian customs will likely take double or triple the time of the boat ride, so it's recommended to get there early, before the office opens at 8 am.

Once free of the national politics, it's a short but confusing drive from the port to Butrint. With perplexing road signs on a winding dirt road that zigzags around memorial sites on the roadsides of a high cliff, it's worth getting a taxi from the port instead of renting a car. The national park spreads approximately 4000 hectares, bordered by man-made Lake Butrint on one side and the Ionian Sea on the other. Entrance to the park costs 700 Leke (about $9 CDN) per person for non-Albanians and 500 Leke (about $6.50 CDN) for groups over 10.
With wide-set, well-groomed paths, the hiking level through the amphitheater and the site of the old city are appropriate for all ages and levels. The hike isn't rigorous, but we quickly realize that we aren't the only visitors at Butrint. It's not long before we're completely swarmed by mosquitoes, making the hike uncomfortable for the divas who forgot their bug spray and are using their travel-sized hairspray bottles as a cheap substitute. But it's worth it as our journey takes us through ancient stone doorways that seem like we're traveling through time. Our leisurely hike takes us through four eras, thousands of years of complex history, and we're back to reality and the start in less than two hours.

Realistically, the hike will probably take less time than the journey to the site itself. But sometimes it's about the journey to the destination—in this case to a country that is trying to build itself up for EU acceptance—that really makes the experience. The labyrinth of ferries, customs and treacherous roads is a true adventure. For those taking a quick getaway to neighbouring Greece, Butrint's beautiful and lengthy history—at a fraction of Grecian prices—is worth checking out in a country that many would never think of visiting.

Ndërtimet pa leje në manastirin e Mesopotamit

Post  AuLoNa on Mon May 04, 2009 10:44 am

Specialistë të Monumenteve ka kohë që kanë ngritur shqetësimin për këtë fenomen si tek drejtuesit vendorë, ashtu dhe tek Inspektorati i Ndërtimit.

SARANDË - Manastiri i njohur i Mesopotamit në Sarandë me një moshë 900-vjeçare, një nga objektet e lashta të kultit e kulturës, po "pushtohet" nga objekte pa leje që po ngrihen rreth tij. Burime për "Gazeta Shqiptare" shtojnë se mes objekteve të kësaj natyre është dhe një kishë, ndërtimi i së cilës është bërë pa lejen përkatëse të Drejtorisë së Monumenteve të Kulturës. Lakmia për ndërtime objektesh pa leje apo që dëmtojnë këtë objekt të lashtë, kryesisht brenda tij, ka nisur të vihet në jetë që prej një viti. Specialistë të Monumenteve ka kohë që kanë ngritur shqetësimin për këtë fenomen si tek drejtuesit vendorë, ashtu dhe tek Inspektorati i Ndërtimit. Në mesvitin 2008, Policia Ndërtimore e Sarandës premtoi se do të ndërhyhej për shembjen e objekteve pa leje në Manastirin e Mesopotamit, por ky premtim nuk u realizua. Ndërkohë, objekte të tjera kanë filluar t'u shtohen atyre ekzistuese. Mjediset rreth tij tashmë i ngjajnë një kantieri ndërtimi ku punohet ditën dhe natën. Mësohet gjithashtu se së fundi, diku pranë tij është projektuar dhe mendohet ngritja e një varreze të re për fshatin. "Një situatë e tillë nuk duhet lejuar. Është e nevojshme një ndërhyrje sa më e shpejtë për të ruajtur këtë objekt të lashtë", - thonë specialistët. Manastiri i Mesopotamit është monument kulture i Kategorisë së Parë dhe unikal në vendin tonë. Ai ndodhet në pjesën jugore të fshatit Mesopotam, pranë Finiqit.

Ehhh po se mos kane nge ti restaurojne, ja i japin si toka, qe te marrin ndonje lek.
Edhe pastaj themi ne pse nuk na njihet historia, sepse keshtu eshte bere gjithmone ne vendin tone.
