Qestorat is a community of Lunxhëri municipality in the district of Gjirokastër, southern Albania.[1]

From 1874 to 1891 the village was home to the Zographeion College, educational facilities that included primary and secondary male, female schools and a teacher's academy and operated with the personal costs of the local benefactor Christakis Zografos.[2] Today this institution houses the museum of Lunxhëri.[3]
