Përmet, in southeast Albania, is a city rich in natural beauty. It is known for its cultural monuments, archeological sites, historical figures, folk music, and the cultivation of roses. Here, different beliefs have coexisted in peace for centuries, and the city and its surroundings possess some of the country’s most beautiful religious objects, which carry considerable cultural and historical value. The Church of St. Kolli, St. Maria Church, St. Friday Church, Tekke of Baba Ali, and Tekke of Frashër are all stellar examples. Permet is also an important place to learn about the history of Albania. This is arguably the key location for the Albanian National Renaissance: the political, social, and cultural movement for the country's liberation from foreign invasions; the unification of Albanian lands; the development of local education and culture from the mid-19th-century to 1912; and the contribution of three brothers, Abdyl, Naim, and Sami Frashri, who were born in the village of Frashër in Përmet and provided some of the country's most valuable and important cultural contributions. Visiting Përmet is a magnificent dive into nature, art, and culture.

  • Saint Friday church- An attractive place of worship—a cultural monument—built in 1776, the Saint Friday Church is in the city of Përmet. The building survived a nationwide campaign of destruction under communism.
  • Tekke of Baba Ali- This place of worship for Bektashi believers is situated on a beautiful hill. From here, visitors have a front-row seat to the Vjosa Valley. Founded in the 18th century, this tekke was burned in 1870 by the Turks and in 1914 by the Greeks. The Tekke, one of the most visited in Albania, was rebuilt with the contributions of mainly Bektashi believers and others.
  • The House of the Three Frashëri Brothers-  Abdyl, Sami and Naim Frashëri, in the village of Frashër of Përmet, was demolished in 1892, and on June 16, 1974, the museum house dedicated to the Frashëri brothers was rebuilt. The contributions of these three brothers is undoubtedly the most valuable and important during the National Renaissance.
  • Saint Mary Church- This place of worship dates to the 17th century and is a Cultural Monument of the First Category. Located in the village of Leusa, 2 kilometers from Përmet, the building is 345 m² with a height of 10 meters.
