Parga harbour

The reason for my visit to Greece was for the wedding of friends, who although are from Brisbane, had decided to get married in Parga (above), on the north-western coast of Greece. The bride's father had lived in this area as a boy, and still had family there, so at the wedding were plenty of Aussies who had travelled to Parga from various parts of the world, and also lots of locals. The wedding was held in a tiny Greek Orthodox church situated on a little island in the harbour, seen in the picture below. The church was built over 200 years ago.

Parga is a beautiful town, with buildings stretching up the hills that surround the sheltered harbour. It gets quite touristy in summer, with many visitors from Britain and Europe, attracted to the
Greek hospitality, the blue sea and the beaches.
