Antiqonea was a city in Chaonia in the ancient Greek Epirus. The city dates back to the 3rd century BC, when it was founded by Pyrrhus of Epirus, who named it after one of his wives, Antigone.
How To Get To Antigonea
Antigonea is located in the mountains, about 16 kilometers from Gjirokastra. Due to its remote location, you need a car or book a tour to get there. The road to the Archaeological Park of Antigonea is paved and in a good condition and you can park at the entrance. During the tourist season you need to buy an entrance ticket for 300 lëke per person, but out of season, the ticket booth is unmanned and you can just go in. This is also the case during the days and hours that the park is officially closed.
Prepare Your Visit To Antigonea
You can easily spend several hours visiting the Archaeological Park of Antigonea, but there are no shops, restaurants or other facilities, so we recommend to bring plenty of water. The environment and views are magnificent, so it’s also a great place for a picnic if you bring your own food. Also don’t forget to bring sunscreen if you visit in summer, as the sun can be very strong.
