Overview

Walking and Hiking on routes developed by Marianne Graf, Austrian humanist and activist in Mirdita area. Rubik is a mining town in the mountainous Mirditë District. This municipal unit consists of the town of Rubik at its center and eleven peripheral villages.
                                    

According to ancient Roman religion and Roman mythology Robigo or Rubigo was the goddess that protected corn and other crops from diseases that infected crops, and in her honor Robigalia festival was organized each April. Thus originates the name of Rubik.

Tous start from Info Tower Rubik and at Katundi i Vjeter. Along the way we will visit Kishë e Shelbuemit ne Rubik or the church of Ascension which is the first building in Rubik that a traveler will notice as they drive along the Fan River. Towering over the small community of Rubik, the Franciscan monastery sits atop a white cliff as if observing the daily activities of the city. Originally established in 1166 as one of four Benedictine Conventions in the Mirdita region of present day Albania, the church represents the ascension of Jesus Christ following his 90-day return after Easter.

And to end it all, Lunch at Etno Village Katuni Vjeter Restaurant.
