Mirdita

Mirdita1, meaning “Good Day”, is a region in the northwestern part of Albania, known for its beauty, history and rugged mountains.

It was and still is the Catholic stronghold and leader of the religion for the north. Throughout the centuries it has been invaded by the Ottoman Empire in attempts to convert it, but due to the strong leadership of the ruling families of the time they were never able to bring this region to its knees, thereby it has protected and cultivated the Catholic religion over five centuries in the north of the country.

The beauty of its mountains, rivers and valleys is indisputable. Aside from the breathtaking views of the Albanian Alps the people of Mirdita are some of the warmest and most hospitable in the country.
