Fantastic view

Quite a walk up to get to the castle but well worth it so you need to wear flat shoes or some sort of trainers.

The best view of Parga is when you climb there. It is very peaceful place where you can sit and relax, also you can read a book. Perfect place in Parga

Be sure to wear comfortable and study footwear and take some water with you - the effort is well worth it. The climb up to the Castle is up steep paths but you can take it easy with regular stops at the many shops or bars and the ground around the Castle is uneven and rough so take care. If... More

A casual walk or climb depending how fit you are is well worth it, one for the amazing views and another for the food. Oh and by the way, there is an amazing leather shop on the way or down with good quality products at very reasonable prices. After enjoying the view we had a Mediterranean omelet as a snack,...

You must be " sure footed" as the ground is uneven BUT the views of Parga harbour are beautiful. Also from the other side of the headland the sunsets are worth going to see

A very pleasant place to walk with wonderful views of from on high Parga. Visible the bay with the chapel and a great location for unique pictures of beautiful Parga - both during the day and at night.
