The Libohova Castle is one of many fortifications built by Ali Pasha Tepelena at the end of 18th century. It is situated at a dominant spot over today’s city, with an almost quadrangular shape, about 50 m x 70 m, with towers at its corners. It was dedicated to Shanisha, the sister of Ali Pasha, as a gift for her wedding.

The feudal residence was located inside the castle. There are some old photos showing how this residence has been in the time where Shanisa lived. It was built possibly in the ruins of another structure. The walls of the castle as still strong. Today the inner area of the castle is empty. Shanisa lived in this castle until she died. Even her grave is located in the city of Libohova, close to the Mosque of the city.
