Pyrgos
Medieval Santorini comes to life in this village. Pyrgos is 7.5 km east of Fira. Built at the foot of Profitis Elias stands out from a distance along many of the routes that visitors follow around the island.In 1995 Pyrgos was declared a "preserved monument".The main attraction is the Kasteli (castle). Visitors also explore the cobbled streets with the Cycladic and the neoclassical buildings, enjoy the sunset over the Caldera from the top of the castle and remember to visit the Ecclesiastical Collection.

Pyrgos village was built on the top of a hill and was until the early 1800, the capital of the island. The village is composed of traditional houses built around the Venetian Castle and the small streets follow the shape of the hill. Climbing from the square up to the castle of Pyrgos, the stone houses crowd more densely together and labyrinth of narrow vaulted lanes becomes more tortuous. The village has approx. 33 churches, the most famous is the Monastery of Profitis Elias, where a small collection of ethnographic material and old icons are exhibits. Pyrgos is a place that certainly worth a visit and dedicate enough time to the most fabulous panoramic view of the island.
