Parga, Greece

Parga is situated in the Preveza prefecture in the south western part of Epirus. Today the area of Parga includes the villages of Agia, Anthoussa, Agia Kiriaki &, of course, Parga. With approximately 4000 inhabitants it is the most important tourist destination of Epirus and one of the most famous Greek tourist resorts.

As well as specializing in tourism Parga also produces fine olive oil, one of the best in the area. Her beautiful nature, spectacular coast line, the lovely beaches and the emerald colors of the olivgroves makes her the jewel of Epirus.

Due to some archaeological findings, it is believed that Parga has been inhabited since the Neolithic times. However, Parga appears more clearly in the greek history since the Byzantine times. Along its history, the city has been conquered by the Venetians, who built the castle of Parga, and has been destroyed by pirates. It has also been under the rule of the Russians and the British, who finally sold it to Ali Pasha, in the 19th century.

Apart from archaeological sites, Parga also has beautiful scenery. A large portion of the greenery surrounding the town consists of huge olive trees, planted by the Venetians in the 16th century. In fact, the olive oil production consists a major income for its inhabitants. The houses of Parga are amphitheatrically built, scattered along a sheltered bay.

Although Parga is not an island, you could say that it does have a certain "island vibe". Moreover, Parga has developed many tourist facilities, along these last years. Most restaurants offer traditional, homemade greek food and there are many places to stay, from camping areas and rooms to rent to luxurious hotels. The local residents are also very friendly. Most tourists are Greek, who want to spend some relaxing days, but Parga also has many Italian visitors, due to its closeness to the Italian coast. Last but not least, the surroundings of Parga have some picturesque villages and nice beaches to visit. These beaches can be reached on foot or by boat from the harbor and are bound to give you relaxing moments. A visit to Parga assures special vacations, with the possibility to enjoy this town and to explore the rich natural area around it.
