History[edit]

The village was first mentioned in 1467 in Ottoman records. In 1583, it was recorded as having 18 Christian and four Muslim residents.[3]

Of all of the local villages during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, while still under the Ottoman Empire, only Herebel and Kërçisht i Sipërm were populated by Bulgarian Exarchists, while the rest were populated by Muslims.[4]

Several members of the Macedonian-Adrianopolitan Volunteer Corps were born in Herebel.[5]

Demographics[edit]

The village today is populated by ethnic Macedonians[6] and Macedonian is spoken in the village.[7]

Culture[edit]

Herebel is home to two Cultural Monuments of Albania, the Church of the Holy Transfiguration and the Halveti Teqe.
