Pyrgos: A maze of Greek architecture
Nestled in the heart of Santorini, Pyrgos beckons with its maze-like streets and dazzling white houses and establishments. As you navigate the narrow cobblestone alleys, you'll find yourself immersed in a captivating labyrinth of Greek architecture.
Enjoy the classic Cycladic architecture and pretty courtyards adorned with vibrant flowers, with fewer tourists than busy Oia.
Pyrgos is situated on a hilltop, making it one of the highest points on Santorini, so be sure to climb to the top for splendid views of the stretching blue sea. There you’ll have the opportunity to explore the remnants of Kasteli Castle, a Byzantine fortress that serves as a testament to Pyrgos' interesting history.
