Butrint in a World Heritage of Humanity- UNESCO, the site of Butrint is considerate the Albanian archeological buttonhole flower. It dates back to the 7th century BC and according to Virgil it was founded by Helenus, the son of the Trojan King Priam. The Greeks made Butrint a major fortified commercial city (the acropolis ruins are still visible). Its fortification from the 6th century BC evokes all the military power of the city and is a symbol of a rich culture and an important and flourishing city. It then became an important Roman colony. Later it fell under the dominion of the Venetians and Turks lost over the centuries its importance began to decline. The city (partly excavated only) is a very important microcosm of almost 3,000 years of Mediterranean history
