Lovely views from a shady cafe serving light meals and drinks. History in Parga. We took some truly magnificent photos

Fantastic view of the harbour and town, as well as a lovely cafe for refreshments and lunch. And free entrance! Signs indicate that some of the walls are deteriorating, so perhaps they should charge and use that money on preservation. We visited twice during our...More

Yes you can just go and wander around free of charge. Lovely views over Parga bay. Don't know about the cafe opening times but expect it would be expensive. It's not a vast area to visit so cafes in town are aplenty.
