The origin of the city starts with the castle of Gjirokastra, built-in IV century. The city was named Argyrokastro, in 1336. In 1417, it was conquered by the Ottoman army. The city reached its greatest bloom during 1800- 1830 when monumental assembly houses were built. The first neighbourhoods are those of Bazaar and Hazmurate.

The main characteristic of Gjirokastra is the intensive use of stone in building the houses, which look like small fortresses, the streets of cobblestone, which all lead to Bazaar. You can also visit the Mosque of Bazaar here, built-in 1557.  Due to all these features, Gjirokastra is also known“The Stone City”.

The most important object of the city is the castle, which represents the biggest castle in Albania. Inside the castle, you can visit the Museum of Weapons, opened in 1971. Weapons from the prehistoric times up to World War II are exhibited here. The National Folk Festival has taken place in this castle during the years.
