Rezervime: http://festival.south.al/reservation/

We are going all to Pilur South Outdoor Festival to start the summer season. A fantastic opportunity to visit this place quite magnificent and above all for adrenaline part of the wind pipe, taking part in many of different activity as: Hiking, Mountain Bike, Trekking, SUP Monster, Scuba Diving, Paragliding, Kayaking est.

Pilur has been known for a long time as the “Balcony of the Coast.” Though it’s present day location is actually not where it began. The name Pilur first appeared in 1431–1432 as part of the Sopot Nahiye (present day Borsh, some 20 kilometers to the south), and was counted to contain a total of thirteen houses. This location was in the gorge between present day Kuç and Kudhes, much lower in elevation. In 1506, and again in 1520, with Ottoman resistance brewing all along the coast, Pilur refused to register with Timars as a forceful gesture of non-participation. Thirty years later in 1551, Pilur was counted again, only this time as part of the nearby settlement known as Delvina Sanjak, and by then increased modestly in size to a total of sixty houses like Himara, Pilur was very active in the resistance to Ottoman rule. Over and over again the historical record shows Piluriot villagers as signatories of letters and petitions that the Himara province was sending to the Western powers asking for assistance against the Ottomans.

Who says we can’t party in Pilur? One stage, different Dj-s, a rock singer, good drinks and everything happens in the mountain. No excuses are accepted to miss a live concert of Eugent Bushpepa in open air. Be there and bring a friend, the more we are the longer we party.
