Megalochori

This beautiful village is located 9.5 km away from Fira, SW of Pyrgos. It follows the type of excavated settlements and was developed along the bottom of a valley sprawling over its "branches".As Dr Dora Monioudi-Gavala * points out, references to Megalohori are found in written sources in the mid- 17th century. It is present in Olivier's depiction of Santorini in 1801.The soil in the area has always been fertile; so, there were many vineyards, and its residents had made money of winemaking.

Megalochori, a truly peaceful and traditional village meaning the “Big Village” but in fact has just over 460 permanent residents and has also kept its features, traditional Cycladic houses, neoclassic buildings and houses dug in the volcanic rock. This village is located only 1 km away from Pyrgos, has typical small white churches with blue domes, a wine tasting and a small choice of taverns and cafés.
