DescriptionYou will start walking toward the Church of Theth. The church as the hallmark of Theth, dates from 1892 and is one of the most visited sites in the area. Theth has a predominantly catholic population and this is visible through the influence of the church’s clergy for centuries. Some of the priests who have served in this church where well know Albanian writers who have contributed immensely in the education of the local population. Your next stop is the Locked in Tower. Lock in towers were used in Albania to defend killers and other offenders from revenge and blood-feuds, while trying to find a peaceful solution between the families involved. This was a part of the Kanun, a rule of conduct written by Leke Dukagjini almost 6 centuries ago. Then you will walk to the Waterfall of Grunas. It takes about 1 hour to walk from the Tower to Grunas Waterfall. The waterfall is about 30 meters high and is considered one of the most beautiful natural monuments in Theth for which it has received a protection status by the Albanian State. After this refreshing visit you walk down to Grunas Canyon on the way to the Blue Eye. The canyon is about 60 meters deep and about 2 kilometer long. After this short visit you continue walking to the Blue Eye, big pool of deep blue water formed by the Black river flowing down the mountain. This pool is about 100 meters squared and about 5 meters deep. Keep in mind that even during the summer the water temperature is really cold if you intend to swim there.
