We enjoyed strolling through the village of Parikia and seeing the small alleys and shops. If you are in Parikia take some time to visit the village and enjoy the sights.

I really enjoyed visiting the town which has the typical narrow pedestrianised streets, relaxing squares and a few sites to visit eg the Frankish castle, Church of a Hundred Doors & the small archaeological museum. The bars & restaurants were all good & friendly.
