The city has over 500 historic buildings. The peculiarities of the time of life in Albania also left traces in their architecture: protective structures were needed, because Albanians occasionally fought against each other; furthermore they rebelled against the High Gate in Istanbul.

Today's city of Gjirokastra includes the Old Town, the castle (the first settlement nucleus) and the Ottoman-style quarters - built on crests, coming from the castle to the valley basin, where there are contemporary buildings and university complex. The traditional neighborhoods lie in the form of rays around the castle with the names Cfakë, Dunavat, Manalat, Palorto, Varosh, Meçite, Hazmurat, Old bazaar.
