Parga is without any doubt the loveliest resort on the mainland of Greece’s north-western Preveza region.

It nestles in a small, sweeping bay between green olive groves and the sea and is a favorite among Greeks as a holiday destination too.

Holidays in Parga hold endless appeal for visitors of all ages and promise laid-back holidays with picture postcard vistas.

Nekromanteion

The Nekromanteion is a dark and mystical place with bold energy, set on a windy hillside, surrounded by a landscape unchanged across centuries.  In Greek, you’ll recognize the word ‘nekro‘, meaning dead. In the ancient world, the Nekromanteion was an oracle of the dead, a gateway to the underworld where supplicants could commune and converse with the departed.

Aphrodite’s Cave

You should definitely go to the cave of Aphrodite (Lichnos beach). It is located in a 5-minute distance from the beach and can be accessed only by boat or a pedalo. According to the myth, Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, used to take her bath in that cave.

Acheron River

There are places that words can’t describe. One such place is the breathtaking canyon of Acherontas. The river and its canyon attract tourists from all over the world. It’s full of mystery and famous as the destination of the dead. Everyone knows the river where the gates of Hades are waiting for the souls to be led to the eternal underworld. Acheron is a mystical river of such natural beauty that few places can compete with it. We highly recommend a trekking trip in the Strait of the river where crystal clear water is running between vertical cliffs over 100 meters high. For those who love adventure, there are trips in and out of the river (river trekking or hiking) with a rising degree of difficulty. The hikers can walk deep in the canyon under the deep shade of huge trees and the lush vegetation until they cross the gates of Hades and Persephone’s Palace. Here anyone can understand why Greeks chose this very wild and majestic scenery to place the entrance to the underworld.

The Venetian Castle

The castle of Parga is found on the top of a hill overlooking the town and was used to protect the town from the mainland and the sea. Its present form is the result of the major reconstruction at the end of the 16th century. Today, the Castle of Parga is a great exponent of the Venetian architecture, as such architectures dominate. It has some interesting details, such as the Lion of Venice in the entrance, emblems of Ali Pasha, two-headed eagles, some inscriptions and a secret path to the sea. The location of this castle obviously provides magnificent views over Parga and the shoreline. It is also a peaceful area to go for a walk, surrounded by cypress trees and crossed by stone trails. There is a café inside the castle that offers drinks and snacks, in case you get tired, as well as some interesting gift shops to buy souvenirs. The most common way to go is a steeped street coming out from the center of the town.
