Onchesmus, a former name of Saranda, was partially fortified in ancient antiquity. The fortification wall, with a perimeter of 850 m (open however on the sea), followed a surface of 5 ha and was reinforced by several towers and bastions. The northern portion is currently under water, due to a rise of the sea that reached its current level towards the end of late Antiquity. However, some ruins of these ramparts remain in the north of the modern city, not far from the bus station. The small remains of one of the turrets are also visible on the downtown beach (west side).
