Built on a high hill above Anthousa
and overlooking the entire bay of Parga
, the ruins of Ali Pasha castle can be visited any time. There is no entrance fee and the fortress is not locked. It is 5.5 km away from Parga but walking would be difficult as the sea altitude is high and the road is steep.
The site is easily reachable by car, as the road continues to a parking lot about 100 meters from the fortress. There is also a tourist land train from Parga which goes to the castle everyday during the summer season, with a professional guide included. The walls of the castle are still preserved, as well as a few cannons. The view from the top of the castle is very impressive, especially in clear weather when even the outlines of the nearby islands of Corfu
can be seen.
