Parga Region

The picturesque town and port of Parga with only 2.5 thousand inhabitants lies on the north-western coast of the Greek mainland in the region of Epirus, washed by the Ionian Sea. It is located close to the well-known and popular island of Corfu and two smaller islands of Paxos and Antipaxos. With its architecture, Parga belongs to the typical Greek seaside resorts. The low coloured houses in the port are built in a cascade on the hillslope, rising above the blue bay, and this spectacular mosaic is divided by the surrounding rocks covered with green vegetation and olive trees.

History of Parga

The history of the Parga region is very rich, as it is the case of many localities in Greece. The oldest findings in the place bring evidence of the settlement as early as in the Stone Age. Yet the tangible and well visible historical sites only come from the subsequent eras. The today’s completely free and independent town of Parga, pertaining to Greece, was by turns under the rule of different nations in the past,. Whether they were the Venetians, Russians, Turks or British, all of them left there some influence. Some of it can be seen e.g. on the Venetian Castle originally from the 11th century, with its remnants that can be admired on a hill above the town. With its location, it is a perfect place for an afternoon walk since from its walls, you can enjoy the adorable view on the wide surroundings, the colourful roofs of the little houses and the sea surface. After a nice trip or bathing in the sea, visit some of the local restaurants or tavernas for a delicious dinner made of the gifts of the Greek nature.
