STATEMENTS What Say Visitors
Visiting Butrint is like entering in a time tunnel, or time machine. In many of the epighraphies found on the ruins, yu can read much more than historians have written.
Pierre CabanesPierre Cabanes, French archeologist and explorer.
Butrint is Albanian land! I come from Kosovo and now that I visited this archeological park, I understood why Virgil made it part of Aeneid. Butrint is a library which gives us plenty of information.
It is a magical place! It is difficult to find another place like this. In Butrint, visitors have the chance to escape from the images of the 21st century.
I am absolutely impressed! Butrint is a micro cosmos of Mediterrenean history, which presents ups and downs of big empires, which have dominated in this region.

The inscriptions of the theater clearly show that, unlike the Greek world, here the woman played a special role, because there were the women who had the right to inherit the property, which was not the case in Greece. There were the women who issued the slave relief license, which was a unique thing in antiquity.
