Skenduli House is one of the best preserved typical Ottoman houses in Gjirokastra. Originally built in the 1700s by Skënder Skënduli the house underwent a partial restoration in 1827. Skëndulli was one of the wealthiest families in southern Albania at that time, which is reflected in the grandeur of the house, which had 64 windows, 40 doors, 12 rooms and 9 fireplaces.
The building is still in its original state and is owned by Nasip Skënduli, as descendant of the family who welcomes vistors and loves telling his stories about the house. During the communist era, the house was used as the Ethnografic Museum but was later returned to the family of the original owners, who welcome visitors. Most of the rooms are completely in its original state with authentic objects, making a visit to the house really worthwhile.
