Amazing hand made masterpieces. The owner was friendly and helpful. 2£ per person, so cheap tickets. Worth to come.

It was amazing factory. Whole masks are handmade and creative. Also, they are really friendly. If you visit Albania, you should go there :)

We were tempted by previous reviews, and were looking for a diversion on a slightly overcast October day. A short walk from the church brought us to a forlorn and unpromising factory building. On trying a door we were immediately overwhelmed by an array of...More
