The houses are made of stone and bricks on the sides of the narrow streets shadowed with grape vines. There are opinions that once the peninsula of Lin had been a beautiful island with blooming vegetation.
Here, in Lin lies the famous basilica as well as 8 rare mosaics dating from the VI -VII century .
2000 years ago , when the Caesar's soldiers arrived at these hills, they were so enchanted that they exclaimed "Lyhnidas", which means Lake of Light.

Important kings are buried here, the ancestors of modern Albanians.
