Overview

Known locally as the ‘Bride of Epirus’, Parga is relatively young for a Greek settlement, having only existed since the early 13th century. Despite this, the town in northwestern Greece still brims with history – it was the only free Christian village in the region during the Ottoman rule. A dilapidated fortress, called the Venetian Castle, is perched on a hilltop overseeing the hued homes and is a reminder of the time when the town fell under the Venetian rule.
