Petrelë Castle

Petrelë is one of the defense castles linked with Kruja.  The castles are up on some of the highest points in Albania so that by lighting fires they could signal to each other if there was a threat.  They were used during Skanderbeg's fight against the Ottomans.  The high vantage point also gives us yet another incredible view of the Albanian countryside.
