The city’s rock is the symbol of Përmet. Impressive, it overlooks the Vjosa River and with its particular shape redraws the line of horizons. For its inhabitants, it represents a monument at the same time historical and natural, around which many legends have united over time (one of them, wants the rock to give the name to the city). Recently, the rock lends itself to climbing enthusiasts who gather in Permet every year in July for the Climbing Festival.
The Orthodox churches of St. Paraskevi and St. Nicholas, the Islamic Mosque and Tekka Bektashi, beyond their historical and architectural value, are a model of harmony and perpetual witness to the peaceful coexistence of a people respectful of diversity.
Strategically located at the top of the hill and with its sinuous streets and stylish stone buildings, the historic center offers visitors a trip back in time and breathtaking views, when at sunset, the valley turns red.
