General Information for Preveza

Preveza The picturesque Parga, Preveza with the kastro and other beautiful locales are the most sought after tourist places of the nome/perfecture of Preveza. In addition to the afore-mentioned locales, the classic antiquities, the historic Zaloggo, the Venetian castles/kastra, the old monasteries and byzantine monuments and the lovely shores of the Ionian Sea enormously add to the attractive picture and completely satisfy the visitor.
