Who goes for the first time says: City Stone.
Normal. Imagine a 42-meter-high cliff with a 650-square-foot square that has “opened” the foundation of Vjosa’s edge. When he saw Edith Duram said, “One of the most beautiful places in the world!” To be cut off the cliff from Mount Desert? Maybe. This is what geologists say. But legend says otherwise: god stone. It has come as a gift from heaven to give the name of the city. Who believes in legends, let’s read the story.
Middle Ages. The prince of the province of Prendi, who named the city, had built a fortress on the City’s Stone. Today the castle is flattened. The walls have remained, a testimony to the legend. It was the end of the 14th century. The army of Sultan Mehmeti conquered Janina. After Janina came to Permet. Take was dead. The mayor of the city was his grandson, Gjergji. There was a girl, a baby with a toddler. One night Turks arrived in the city. The kryezoti was out of it. In the castle was just a girl. The Turks sought the strongholds and the delivery of the girl. Diestra took the cradle with her son and jumped from the top of the rock. At the foot of the City Stone, there is a smooth stone where Diestra crashed. On the stone some notes: Baby’s hand or cradle lines. This is what the legend says.
Who has lived in Përmet, can say: City of Roses!
Normal. The Ba’evan of Permeti have been renowned throughout the Balkans. They have cultivated so many types of soy, that roses flourish every season. But the submeters also have a “secret”: They produce rose water. With this water, wash the bridegroom with the bride on the wedding day! No perfume can be compared to it! Pink water is also used as a “delicacy” in the glottes with so much fame that the hosts of the city! For the enthusiasts, the owner of the hotel “Alvero”, has a relic: Devices to produce rose water. It was bought in Istanbul two centuries ago!
Other thoughts have historians. According to them, Përmet is a symbol of the Frashëri family.
