Also called Paros Town or Hora, Parikia is the capital of Paros Greece and has about 3,000 inhabitants. Parikia was built on the same site where the ancient city and capital used to stand. This little town is the commercial and cultural centre of Paros
as well as the main harbour of the island, serving many other islands. For the numerous connections Paros offers, thousands of visitors visit Parikia during summer just to catch a connection for another island.
