This monument is the face of Albania. Skanderbeg is the National Hero of Albania, which represents the history of it. Must see!

We have been there during the renovation...so unfortunate. Looks like a great place and historical location. Hope they'll renovate it soon and it that it will look superb.

The square is a big open space and the building work was just starting when we visited-this could blight the area for a while.

This is an ok place. Just another site to see when you visit. Just another part of Tirana. But there is other things to see and do around the square.
