Parga

The Bride of Epirus

Parga is a renowned holiday destination in Epirus and the Ionian Sea. It uniquely combines the cosmopolitan with the traditional.

The amphitheatrically built town still retains most of its traditional beauty: Colourful mansions, small alleys, imposing castles and picturesque chapels.

At the same time, Parga offers cosmopolitan beaches and is welcoming people from all over Greece and abroad.

Parga’s stunning sunset and full moon over the emerald waters of the Ionian Sea are a wonder to behold.

The Islet of Panagia in Parga

Virgin Mary Chapel

The islet facing Parga with its whitewashed chapel of “Panagia” or Virgin Mary, is one of Greece’s most photographed locations in Greece. It has been featured in numerous campaigns by tourism organisations in Greece and elsewhere.

Parga by Night

If you fancy a romantic walk by the waterfront or just a stroll around the alleys of the old town, Parga by night will not disappoint you.

Stylish restaurants, traditional ‘tavernas’, cosmopolitan bars, tourist shops and of course the stunning view of the lit up castles and Panagia islet offer a wonderful experience to the traveller.

A Brief History of Parga

Parga has always been a significant hub of trade for the area – even since antiquity. But especially during the Venetian period, Parga achieved great economic prosperity. After gaining significant trade privileges, it became the bridge between the Turkish occupied Greece and Venice. 

Economic prosperity led to great progress in education. Parga had many great teachers and scholars.

But things didn’t turn out well for Parga. Ali Pasha of the Turks has been trying to conquer Parga for many years, though unsuccessfully. Now the English, in alliance with Ali Pasha, intended to sell Parga to him.

The people of Parga, in a heroic yet vain effort to remain free, resisted the sale treaty. But there was little they could have done.

So, in 1819, the people of Parga fled to Corfu. The collective memory has preserved the wail and flight to Corfu as an important and tragic event in the history of the city and of Greece.

That is why every year, on 15th August, the people of Parga honour the exodus of their ancestors by organizing a barcaral representation and a variety of events.

On 23rd February 1913, Parga was liberated and incorporated into the Greek state, and the people of Parga finally returned to their homeland after years of self-exile.
