Nowadays, Parga has developed as a tourist destination, and is now one of the most organised destinations. The sightseeing and monuments of Parga are many and remarkable:


  • On the northern side of the port, there is the castle of Parga, which was built in the 14th century with the aid of Normans. After consecutive destructions by pirate Barbarossa and the Turks, it was finally formed by the Venetians. In this castle, free besieged citizens of Parga and Souli fought in heroic battles against the army of Ali Pasha. Today, the castle is visited by many people. Farther north, there is the castle of Ali Pasha which is built on a high hill where the view is breathtaking.
  • The island of Panagia is also impressive, opposite the port of Parga, with the church and the picturesque bell tower, as well as the small castle of French construction, on the highest point of the island.
  • The Vlacherna Monastery, a Byzantine monastery built before the 12th century, in the beautiful area of Valtos, on a hill. The icon of Panagia Vlacherna is said to have come from Cappadocia (the year 986 is written on the icon) and is kept in the church museum of Parga.
