Korça’s history is written on the cobbled stone streets on which it stands the beginning of civilization. There are found old houses constructed with a unique Italian architecture. The most distinguished zones of Korça city are the old characteristic neighborhoods (lagjia1, lagjia 2 and lagjia 3),well known for their cobbled streets and beautiful homes surrounded by railing. Korca’s old neighborhoods are located in the east part of the city , behind the church “Resurrection of Christ” at the entrance of “Republika” Boulevard and “Saint George” Boulevard. In general, old houses are well maintained and its worth visiting them. In the first decades of the twentieth century with the enrichment of the bourgeoisie, the contrast between the old city area, known as Manço and Penço neighborhoods (zones situated above the National Warrior Monument) became quite visible. At the old city area was evident a typical medieval Balkan urban planning of the center consisting of narrow winding alleys and small and un systemized houses. While in the new part of the city there were straight roads and regular building blocks.
