The stone-carver of the stone city!

If you visit Gjirokastra, you will be amazed by the dominance of the stone element in this city. The buildings are all made of limestone in silver color, with surrounding stone walls and stone roofs, the paths and steps of the city are also cobbled. Stone carving has been one of the oldest professions and continues to remain an important tradition of the city.

Muhedin Makriu was one of the greatest masters of stone carving in Gjirokaster, who worked for 25 years as a stone-carver and iron-worker.

Muhedin opened an exhibition shop with his works and for several decades he constantly created artistic works for tourists.

It is amazing to see very elegant works of art produced from nature’s hardest material, such as stone.

Unfortunately, he passed away during the Covid – 19 period, but his son continues the family tradition in the showroom.

If you decide to visit Gjirokastra, you can take lessons from the masters and carve your own souvenir to remember the stone city!
