TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Palma Berat
This is a new hotel on the banks of the River Osum, but it isn't sterile as so many new properties are. It is simple, but has style and people working here who care that things are done properly. The rooms have great river views. An easy walk into town and up to the castle. Recommended!

... the rest of the church. We walked about the castle viewing chapels, statues, and so much more before stopping for lunch within the castle. (People live within the castle and some have small businesses.) Our lunch was family style with Greek salad, stuffed pepper, beef patty with fried vegetables, byrek - one with pumpkin and one with spinach, and eggplant with cheese - all delicious. For desert it was pound cake and cantelope. Then the owner came ...
