This is a lovely old fortress well worth exploring. It is much bigger than you first realise if you take a good look around, and has great views over the town and it's beach on one side, and of valtos beach on the other. It's quite a traipse up the hill to getto it, but well worth the effort. If... More

Amazing view, nice cantina and nice climb, although a bit difficult for the ones with some extra weight... Nice idea to get some coffee on your way down in one of the nice places overlooking Parga. The castle itself is not anything really special but there are some nice trails around it..

The walk to the top of the castle seems daunting at first, particularly in the heat of summer. But as you weave your way through the amazing alleyways of Parga, filled with lively shops, tavernas and gyro, gyro gyro....it is totally worth it. The view from the top is breathtaking..... Not much else up there apart from a cafe, but... More

Maybe early afternoon is not the time to walk up to the castle. Very thankful for the shade of a few trees when we got up there. There is no charge to go in, and you are just free to walk around. A pity about the graffiti but I am sure it would be worse if it was in the... More

It`s the ideal place to enjoy the wide view over the city and sea. The castle is on the hill, there is a beautiful cafe-bar at the shadow of pins, very good place for drinking a coffee or a tasty fresh. Concerning to the castel ruins, being a place full of history, it could be exposed to a board more... More
