While being in Parga location on summer holiday, we have decided to visit some local archeological attractions, where Nekromanteion was one of places we have visited. There is nothing much to see in this place, but if you plan your trip visely, worth a having short break here as well. For historical fans definitelly worth a go.

Very interesting story and worth a visit, the views of the delta are beautiful Tip: if you are visiting during non peak times don't park in the car park but drive to the top as there is parking.

There were to many turists and the information about the sight was not ample. Not very much to see and they charge entry fee

This is a nice and interesting place but you should know litle about the place otherwise you won't understand, which happened to some French tourists we met who didn't speak Englsih and were really puzzled! Otherwise this wouldn't be my fist choicie if I had little time in the region, just something to in addition when you have spare time.

You can not realise it. The dark stoa still there, where all the manes were coming to whisper the future. A few seconds into its metaphysic field, much more adrenaline than minutes in extreem sport! 2 euros the ticket and free for students, really deserves it.

Very interesting historical sight. The story is very interesting and cool, so don't go out there withot turist guide. Without him it is just a bunch of old stones :) But if story is told the right way, everything gets a different dimension. I recommend visiting if you have spare time. We had a lot of fun.

This is quite an unusual place and quite eerie. It is known as the Oracle of Death and is where people were allegedly allowed to communicate with the dead. In the underground chamber is where this ritual took place and you access it by a very steep staircase. We took several pictures in this chamber and one of them has... More

We visited this site by hire car from Parga and found the journey very straightforward. Excellent site to visit with information boards located around the site.

Expected to be spooky but in the end you realize that it was all about contacting loved ones even under the use of drags given by priests. The ancient Greeks had a way for everything and for everyone. A visit is worthwhile
