A small town with intense insular character and one of the most important wetland reserves of Europe, Amvrakikos Gulf. The smell of grilled sardines spreads all over. Gardens in bloom, a beautiful sight. The creaking of sailboat masts and unforgettable tastes of fish roe, seafood and anchovies marinated in tsipouro. Songs, festivities and carnival. On the coastal pedestrian street movement almost never stops. The tourist season starts very early here and it ends very late. Weather conditions permit this. It seems that construction of the town started at the end of the 12th century when neighboring Nikopolis, only 6 km. away, was abandoned after resisting a thousand years of successive attacks and destructions.

Steep mountain-sides go all the way down to the sea, forming a succession of sandy and rocky beaches. The green of the lush vegetation meets the blue of the sea, captivating the senses. Castles, mansions, villages perched on mountain-sides, cobblestone bridges and monuments of Christian architecture and religious painting testify to a glorious past.

It was built by people from Constantinople who arrived here around the 11th century. But ruins from an ancient wall prove the existence of inhabitants in prehistoric times already and up to Hellenistic times. The ‘60s found Parga in full tourist development. It was and it remains the most popular tourist center in the whole of Epirus. It remains the only coastal city with an island character. Some people call it “St. Tropez of Epirus”. No one remains indifferent to its attractions: the narrow uphill cobblestone lanes, the green islets closing off its threefold bay, its castle, the transparent waters, the picturesque houses with their jasmine and their bougainvilleas, the olive grove, the delicious fish.
