Parga Castles & knights
Parga will make you question whether you are on an island or not.
Situated 30 kms south of Sivota, Parga is one of the most picturesque locations of the area. Many small coves to explore and crystal waters to dive in. Small churches scattered around the small islands in front of the port and a Venetian castle over the hill.
The castle of Parga is found on the top of a hill overlooking the town and was used to protect the town from the mainland and the sea. It was initially built in the 11th century by the residents of Parga to protect their town from the pirates and the Turks but it was partly destroyed by such invasions. In the 13th century, the Venetians rebuilt the castle to fortify the area. In 1452, Parga was occupied by the Turks and destroyed part of the Castle.
Today, the Castle of Parga is a great exponent of the Venetian architecture and a place to see the town from another perspective.
Parga is also known for its nightlife, bars and terrace bars, where you can enjoy your cocktail with a panoramic view.
