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.
