Description of Balibardha Castle

Balibardha Castle is a medieval citadel in Berat County of Albania. Modern location is fairly remote. Little remains from the original structure today. Over a course of several centuries local farmers used medieval stones to construct new buildings. So today it is quiet difficult to find ruins of the medieval citadel. Balibardha Castle played a strategic role until newly emerged technologies didn't make stationary castles obsolete. Local government simply abandoned this strategic location since Albania was part of the greater Ottoman Empire that secured protection of the local lands against any aggression from neigbours.
