History of Parga

Parga was primarily ruled by the Venetians (beginning in 1401) for a time, and briefly by the Ottomans. Greece regained the area in 1913, and much of the population returned after having gone to Corfu to avoid the Turk power (which had acquired it from the British in 1919). This tangled story of international relations influences the area's buildings and the archeological ruins that are part of the local attractions, besides the natural beauty and the number of beaches that are along the coast.

A closeby Venetian castle is built atop a ridge on the coast, which was developed from an earlier fortress built by the local residents to protect the town against pirates and the Ottomans.
