The Water Gate, 13th - 15th centuries, giving access to the South bank of the Vivari channel, Butrint, Chaonia, Albania. The gate has an arch of tile and stone, with a later buttress visible through the gateway. Butrint was founded by the Greek Chaonian tribe and was a port throughout Hellenistic and Roman times, when it was known as Buthrotum. It was ruled by the Byzantines and the Venetians and finally abandoned in the Middle Ages. The ruins at Butrint were listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992. Picture by Manuel Cohen
