Pyrgos is 4.5 km south east of Fira. Its traditional whitewashed buildings, ruins of neoclassical mansions, and picturesque blue-domed churches, make it a treat to wander the narrow winding paths of Pyrgos. Subdued, authentic, and refreshingly devoid of tourists, the village is wrapped amphitheatrically around a hill crowned by the well-preserved remnants of a Venetian castle. Its privileged position in one of the highest spots of Santorini provides incredible panoramic views of the whole island all the way to pastel-tinted Oia.
Pyrgos’ fortress-like architecture is at its most magical on Good Friday, when the entire town is lit up with thousands of tin lanterns during the solemn evening procession.
