Description:
Antigonea (), also transliterated as Antigonia and Antigoneia, was an ancient Greek city in Epirus and the chief inland city of the ancient Chaonians. It was founded in the 3rd century BC by Pyrrhus of Epirus, who named it after one of his wives, Antigone, daughter of Berenice.

Its ruins are located just south of the village of Saraqinisht in the Antigonë municipality, Gjirokastër District, Albania. Now that area has been declared a National Archaeological Park by the Albanian Government. The ruins are accessible from Gjirokastër by car or by nature trail.

The Archeological Park is known for having organized since 2007 a yearly Festival of the Pagan Rites and the Popular Games (). Recently, the village has hosted an annual culinary exhibition showcasing the best of local organic production and traditional specialties.
