This is the Lady's island with its little church, named Panagia Holy Chapel, in Parga, Greece.
Parga has a long history through the centuries. That is why she is rightly called "The Princess of Epirus". It is a seaside town located in the northwestern part of the prefecture of Preveza and overlooking the Ionian Sea. It is built amphitheatrically inside a green picturesque cove overlooking the lush island of Panagia, or Lady's Island, which stands haughtily in the calm waters of the port. Above it, the small church of Panagia with the characteristic all-white bell tower, as well as parts of a castle built by the French conquerors in 1808 in order to control the small ships in the port, which were not visible from the main castle. Nowadays it is a popular wedding destination as we were told by the locals.
We visited Parga for a weekend during our summer vacation but we were really lucky to get such an amazing and colorful sunset. The long exposure photo was taken from Parga's castle a famous tourist attraction.
