Stop At: Cape of Rodon, Albania
The Cape of Rodon is a natural wonder and it is a hidden gem in Albania. The Cape of Rodon is a rocky peninsula that points into the Adriatic Sea. The cape of Rodon is also known as the Cape of Skanderbeg or "Kepi i Rodonit".
The cape is completely overgrown by nature and untouched by humans. It takes about 2 hours to drive from Tirana. However, from the parking space, the cape can only be reached by hiking along a trail for about 45 minutes. At the end of the trail, you will see the Cape of Rodon. From the hill, you will have beautiful views of the lush green cape, which points into the wild sea. From the hill, you can descent to the Cape to visit the Rodoni Castle.
During the communist period, the Cape of Rodon was a restricted area. Since, it served as a military base by the coast. Along the walking trail, you will see numerous bunkers and tunnels, which remind the Albanian people of the strict communist regime of Enver Hoxha.

Stop At: Rodoni Castle, Cape of Rodon Albania
On the Cape of Rodon, you can visit the Rodoni Castle. The castle is also called Skanderbeg Castle, since it was build by Albanian's national hero Skanderbeg. Skanderbeg was a military commander, who united the Albanian tribes and led the defence against the invasion of the Ottoman Turks.
Skanderbeg completed the castle around 1452 with the intention to have access to the Adriatic Sea. However, in 1467, the Ottoman Turks destroyed the castle. The castle was later rebuilt by the Venetians after 1500.
