"Qeparo and the Albanian Riviera" Qeparo by JLBG

Qeparo Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 33 photos

Qeparo is a small village on the Albanian Riviera, 36 km north to Saranda, 13 km south to Himarë and 22 km south to Dhërmi. As all the villages of the Albanian Riviera, it is clung to the mountain and overhangs the Adriatic.

This page is not about the vilage itself but about the road that passes along Qeparo village and its wherabouts.

    The history and culture/religious core here still haunt along with the war preparations. It looks like the roads are a challenge; same we had in some Croatia areas in the center-not yet finished. You show this very well

    Oh, these bunkers look nice, I can think of thousands of ways to reuse them. They could be sold to Palatinate, their vineyard houses look similar :-) Interesting tourist trap, oh well... the zeros.

    What a great piece of luck to go into that restaurant and have a wonderful plate of fresh trout. This area is obviously ripe for development as they are building new roads (here we call it "Create work projects")

    Great photos and tips on how the new road is already changing things around Qeparo. Those were very interesting military tips too on the submarine pen and the fate of the strange old pillboxes!

    Its good that they have now put up guard rails on that perilous looking road. That road to nowhere may one day lead to somewhere (exciting?) Nice page, Jean-Louis. Merci

    Great page. As for tourist and other basic infrastructure I've found Albania the fastest changing country I have ever visited. In 5-10 years it will look quite different, I am sure.

    The new road is quite a change, they're clearly expecting armies of tourists to visit this lovely looking coastline. An interesting 'pre-development' page, J_L.

    Too bad about the new road leaving such enormous scars in the landscape!

    Comrade Enver Hoxha will laugh and see who has gone mad! Unfortunately His small country full of funny bunkers is a small model of our great countries full of great bunkers (in ground, in oceans and in space).
