The Cave of Pellumbas, or the Black Cave (Shpelle e Zezë), is about an hour hike from the village of Pellumbas. The cave itself is approximately 360 meters deep and hides impressive stalagmites and stalactites, as well as bats.
The cave’s completely dark interior was home to bears some 40,000 years ago and later used as a settlement for ancient humans during the Middle Paleolithic period.
During the World Wars, the cave was kept secret and used as a hiding spot for the villagers. In more recent years, it has become a popular day-trip for both foreign and Albanian visitors.
