A Little Discourse of the History of Parga
Parga is a wonderful resort town that was built in the shape of amphitheatre. It offers a breathtaking combination of picturesque mountains covered in emerald green olive gardens and a blue clear sea with gorgeous sandy beaches. It has been known since the 13th century and initially was built on the top of the mountain. Later, in 1360, it was moved it to the place where it is now located. Local people built a beautiful fortress there in order to protect themselves from attacks of other nations. Parga was one single Christian settlement in Greece where Christians could hide. In 1797 it was ruled by the French, then later by the British and in 1917 it finally became a free Greek town after Greece won in the wars.
Present Day Parga
Nowadays Parga, like some kind of magnet, attracts hundreds of tourists every season because of its breathtaking scenery and wonderful beaches. Here you can enjoy a nice swim in a crystal clear sea as well as do different kinds of sport. The majority of beaches in Parga are well-organized and well-equipped. You can find almost anything here to help you have a great time: jet-skiing, water-skiing, windsurfing, parasailing, diving, snorkeling and of course fishing. It is also considered to be the most beautiful part of the Ionian Sea coast. You can also raft here, mountain bike, hike and ride a horse. It is a magical town and one of the most beautiful ones in Greece. It is like a delicate lady laid back in the shade of an ancient fortress. The view from the top of the mountain is simply breathtaking. Local architectural design with two and three storey houses that have wooden balconies and tiled roofs looks very interesting as well as many beautiful little churches, restaurants, taverns, bars, cafes and shops.
