Well worth the climb to visit the ruins of the old Venetian castle which overlooks the bay. It's not as high as it looks from the beach. The views are wonderful and the bar/ coffee shop looks nice, though we did not try it. Very little info about the place however. I would have liked to learn more and it... More

This is the place in Parga offering the best view. Situated on a rock, the Venetian Castle is a trademark of Parga. From there you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the Ioanian Sea, the town of Parga, the harbour, the small islands surrounding the shore. You can have breakfast, a snack, lunch, dinner or your drink there as the... More

Go the Café and have some down time with a drink in hand and thoughts drifting in and out as you gaze out to sea with boats bobbing bye. Have cards games with the kids as the sun goes down. Take fab photos of the nightlife of Parga. Make it what's right for you, we do have different times which... More

I have been to this castle when I were younger, but now is the first I really appreciated the architecture, and athmosphere. The climb up can be a bit heavy with all the stairs, but most people can manage with some breaks. The best part was to travel there at night with a flashlight on the phone, and explore the... More

I love the castle at Parga - it is free to enter and has the most beautiful 360 degree views over the town, the sea and Valtos beach. Make sure that you wear good footwear as some of the ground is uneven and the cobbled steps are very slippy. There are sheer drops in parts too, not for the faint... More

Head up from the Parga Harbor, and enjoy it best at sunset.. Head towards the far back (towards the setting sun :) and get great shots of Valtos Beach... Sadly not very well kept, but worth the hike for a snack at the cafeteria and sunset pics...

The Citadel Bar at the castle has stunning views through mature Pine trees down over the town, the sea and the little island with its church. One of my favourite bars in the world - it's that good.

One of the most beautiful castles mostly due to its location. The sunset from the castle is something any traveller of Parga should experience.

The venetian castle must once have been splendid but is now a sad ruin of it's former syaye, Worth the climb for a look round but excellant for the view and photo opportunities of Parga.
