Mount Tomorr watches over the Osumi River, low in the dry season as it flows through Berat, as seen from Gorica Bridge. This lofty peak, catching the evening rays of an autumn sun, is sacred to both local Christians and Bektashi Muslims (Bektashism is a mystic Sufi order that I’ll explain more of later...); the former climbing up on Assumption Day for the Blessed Mother, the latter ascending to honor Al-Abbas ibn Ali. The mountain takes its name from ancient Albanian folklore: Baba Tomor, father of gods and men, was an old giant with flowing white beard, his loyal Eagles in attendance. His love was Bukura e dheut, the Earth Beauty, and her sisters were the Sea Beauty and the Heavens Beauty. Berat was his most favored city, and he stayed close, guarding it jealously. One day, while he lay with his lover, the giant Shpirag (in the form of the mountain to the west seen in my earlier post “ADVENTURE IN BERAT - Part 4) crept in to seize the city for himself. Awakened by the Eagles, Baba Tomor rose to do battle with Shpirag: his scythe cutting the deep furrows seen today, while Shpirag clubbed him back, wounding him in the form of the clefts of the mountain. Both were slain, and in her sadness the Earth Beauty drowned in tears, which became the Osumi River. Spanning the river, Gorica Bridge once had a dungeon built into its original wooden structure. According to local legend, a young girl would be locked away within and starved to placate the spirits guarding the bridge... Today there are no epic battles, no tears or appeasement, only a gentle breeze and the setting rays playing on the water’s surface, reflecting the majesty of the Land of Eagles...   #berat     #osumriver     #albania     #AnAmericanInAlbania   🇦🇱⛰⚔️💖🦅

  #berati   merupakan nama kota di   #albania   . Letaknya di bagian tengah negara ex-komunis ini. Pada tahun 2003, Berat ini memiliki jumlah penduduk sebanyak 45.500 jiwa. Berat ini merupakan salah satu kota terbesar di Albania. Kota ini dilalui oleh   #osumriver   . Kota Berat terkenal karena arsitektur bangunannya yang terlihat sangat indah di tepi tebing bukit yang cukup curam. "Kota dengan ribuan jendela" adalah sebutan yang diberikan ke kota dengan arsitektur rumah Balkan kuno di tepi bukit, di sisi sungai Osum ini. Pemandangan yang mirip bisa kita lihat di   #m  lník ,   #bulgaria   ,   #gjirokastra   di   #albania   , dan   #catanzaro   di   #italy   , daerah di mana bangsa Albania pernah menetap. Berat menerima UNESCO World Heritage di tahun 2008.   #beratcastle   berdiri di atas bukit batu di sisi kanan sungai Osum. Kami sempat makan malam di restoran   #kalaja   di dalam kompleks Istana Berat. Di dalam kompleks ini terdapat lebih dari 10 Gereja dan beberapa mesjid, seperti   #xhamiamosque  . Menunjukkan bahwa Kompleks ini dulu merupakan tempat tinggal bagi penduduk lokal.   #familyholiday     #albania     #berati     #beratcastle
