Overlooking the beautiful bay of Himare, there is a lonely, overpriced restaurant. A canvas poster proclaims that it has the best view in Albania.
Behind the Trammonto Bar-Ristorante there was a ruined farmhouse. It had been connected to the electricity supply at one point, so its dilapidation cannot have been more than a decade ago.
Higher on the promontory, there was a modern house which did not look as interesting. As it had been built on a slope, there was a door in the roof, reached by a staircase.
But there is an older Himare (Himare Fshat), built on a steep, rocky hill above the beach. Old churches, some ruined, some ruined but still being actively used for worship, huddle within the ancient walls of a castle. Houses built into the castle walls are still lived in.
Back in the tourist town of Himare, there are some other doors of interest.
