Lo que dice el Arxiduc:

“The houses in the city are extremely simple; many of them could even be called poor. Numerous homes have stairs without a handrail from the street up to the main floor. The stairs are made out of stone or they are simply made of wood and protrude out from the lower part of the home.


On some houses the top of the stairs rests on an arch and forms a type of landing with an eave.

Some doors have a profile above with a cornice. Others have a carena arch (similar to a Tudor style arch) above the half-point arch. The sunken half-point arches end in some doors with a carena arch above.”

Datos proyecto Nixe III:

Also worth noting are the stairs leading up to the house’s primary entrances. They helped defend the houses in case of enemy attacks. To the right we can see one such staircase on the main street. Underneath is a remodeled staircase which is one of the ones the Archduke originally took a photo of. There is another one next to Parga’s Museum and old olive oil factory.




On Parga’s main streets we can see a lot of restored homes in keeping with the traditional style as well as others which haven’t respected the old style.




That notwithstanding, in the first row of houses along the beach, most houses have been remodeled respecting traditional construction techniques.
