PARGA: The “cosmopolitan” princess of Epirus
Surrounded by a green landscape, with its narrow paved alleys, the traditional “kadounia”, its blooming neighborhoods, the stunning beaches and the view to the island of Panagia, Parga is one of the most popular destinations in our country, especially during the summer months.
It is a traditional settlement – obviously influenced by the Ionian architecture – built amphitheatrically on the outskirts of the Venetian castle, in the northwestern part of the prefecture of Preveza and on the Ionian coast, between the seaside area of Igoumenitsa and Preveza. Just opposite Parga, there is the picturesque green island of Panagia in which there is a church as well as medieval and Venetian buildings. Parga and its “strategic” location are ideal for many excursions to beautiful places and attractions. From Parga, the visitor can go by boat to the fantastic “twin” of Paxos – Antipaxos or to visit the beautiful Sivota with the exotic beaches.
