The Venetian Castle is at the top of the hill overlooking the town and provides magnificent views over Parga and its shoreline.

The castle is a great example of Venetian architecture. Its history is a testament to the strength and determination of the people of Parga who had to rebuild it four times following invasions. The final rebuild in 1819 saw a stronger fortress and a new building called the hammam at the top, where the harem of the Sultan lived. It has some interesting details such as the Lion of Venice in the entrance and two-headed eagles. There is a cafeteria providing light refreshments and gift shops to buy your souvenirs.

Some of the paths are not on Google Maps and we have provided the satellite view of the area for ease of use. The “directions to here” option on Google Maps may not work correctly with these destinations due to the narrow roads and footpaths. We advise that you turn this function off.
