Livadhe (in Albanian, with its definite form as Livadhja; in Greek: Livadeia, Λιβαδειά) is a village and a former municipality in Vlorë County, southern Albania. At the 2015 local government reform it became a subdivision of the municipality Finiq.[1] The population at the 2011 census was 1,165.[2] The municipal unit consists of the villages Livadhja, Kulluricë, Llazat, Kalcat, Kodër, Lefter Talo, Vagalat, Gravë, Qesarat, Komat, Karroq, Grazhdan and Zminec all inhabited solely by Greeks, while Sopik is inhabited by an Orthodox Albanian population and Pandalejmon by Muslim Cham Albanians.[3] A study by Leonidas Kallivretakis in 1993 found that the population of the commune consisted of 85% ethnic Greek Christians, 10% Albanian Christians, and 5% Albanian Muslims.[3]
