 Bylis is the only archeological park in Albania with over 1000 m² mosaics of the Late Antiquity period and the only park in Albania with the highest density of basilicas within its territory.
The ancient city of Bylis lies just outside the small town of Ballsh, 10 km away, on the right side of the road, where a series of high hills stand out. The Bylis Theater is one of the largest monuments of this archeological center, which was built at the beginning of the 3rd century BC and has a capacity of 7500 seats, which means that it has been one of the greatest works of time.
