In the 13th century, the Venetians rebuilt the castle to fortify the area. In 1452, Parga was occupied by the Turks and destroyed part of the Castle. Today, the Castle of Parga is a great exponent of the Venetian architecture, as such architectures dominate. The location of this castle 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 cafeteria inside the castle that offers drinks and snacks as well as some interesting gift shops to buy souvenirs. The most common way to go is a steeped street coming out from the centre of the town.
