Parga Travel Guide: 147 reviews and 414 photos

Parga is a touristy little town of a little more than 2,000 permanent residents. It is 49 km south to Igoumenitsa and 67 km north to Preveza. It is spelled Παργα in Greek.

It is nested on the slopes of Mount Pétzovolios, at the bottom of a well sheltered bay of the Ionian sea, on the north western coast of Greece. It is considered as one of the prettiest villages of Greece and I can agree with that. No wonder that in summer it is crowded!

I have been to Parga half a dozen times, either by road or by sea when sailing to the Ionian islands.

    What vivid photographs you have! I was impressed by the info about the "oven grave". Chapel on Panagia Island is so lovely. A wonderful page.

    I must agree with you that Parga is one of the prettiest villages of Greece! Pity that I won't see it with my own eyes...
