Parika Town Details

Exploring Parika, which is the biggest town on the island, is one of the best things to do in Paros. You can see that its harbor is always abuzz with activities, especially with the comings and goings of hydrofoils and ferries. However, if you will just take the time to get away from the main docking area, then you can find that there can be peace and quiet here as well as a smattering of attractions.One of the attractions that you must discover in Parika are the winding streets that can be found beyond the harbor. Designed to keep pirates away, these cobbled streets are definitely quite puzzling. Of course, discovering the other treasures of the island should also be one of the things to do in Paros that you must accomplish during your stay. Among these treasures are the Venetian fortress as well as the Church of Our Lady of a Hundred Doors from the 6th century. If you will climb up to the monastery on the mountain overlooking Parika, you will be able to take in scenic views of the harbor.
