Built in the 19th century this pretty church was a gift from the Emperor of Austro-Hungary. Not far from the center of Tirana it is worth a quick visit.

This is a very charming Catholic Church not far from the downtown area, along a street with a lot of shops and restaurants. There is a Mass every day at 6:00 PM, as well as Sunday mornings. Services are all in Albanian, though. It seems well attended and is worth a visit.

Extra-ordinarily old architectural form. Why would you choose to build in a style famous from about 350 A.D.? Great halls are memorable and arresting of the usual thought patterns, that's why! Still works the magic. Give to the old widows outside.

I did not find The Catholic church of St. Marie as on the title. Instead, I find another Catholic church, Heart of Christ Church on Rruga Kavala. The... More
