Overview of Pyrgos

Pyrgos, Santorini Island

Pyrgos was built on the top of a hill and was until the early 1800, the capital of the island.The houses are arranged amphitheatrically surrounding the remains of the Venetian castle (today known as "kasteli") offering a magnificent view. Climing from the square up to the castle of Pyrgos, the stone houses crowd more densely together and the labyrinth of narrow vaulted lanes becomes more tortuous.
Apart from the "kasteli", it is worthseeing the Monastery of Profitis Ilias on the top of the mountain, built in the 18th century. Several precious religious artefacts are shown to the visitor; among them the adorned mitre of the Patriarch Gregorius the fifth, crosses and silver bound books, as well as byzantine icons dating back to the 15th century. The view from the Monastery is breathtaking, it can be seen almost all of the island. The monastery is 4 klm far from Pyrgos, at the South. The church of "Theotokaki" is one of the older churches in Santorini, dating back to the 10th century. It is also worth visiting the winery of Santo, one of the wine making companies of the island. There is an exhibition of photographs and local products of Santorini.
Pyrgos is a place that certainly worth a visit and dedicate enough time to the most fabulous panoramic view of the island.
