Pyrgos was born in the Middle Ages and, in order to protect its people from enemies, it was build as a labyrinth of narrow streets. Most of the buildings don't have windows on the lower floors so that every street looks the same. In addition, some of them ends with a wall. No wonder that invaders got lost and ended... More

cute village out of a postcard. You can reach it by bus from tinos quite easily. It's small but lovely.

This was a fantastic village to wander around. Few shops and art shops to look at. Great views. Every corner seem to take you down a different ally. Worth spending a morning looking around and simply enjoy the beauty of this quaint place.

Pyrgos is a lovely village at the foot of Profitis Ilias, which offers some really nice views towards the Caldera and towards the eastern part of the island. Numerous chapels and churches decorate the way up to the old Castle. There are only a view shops and cafes/restaurants which all appeared very cosy. We chose the Rosemary restaurant for lunch,...

It's a beautiful and quaint small village with cute traditional buildings. Less touristy and a wonderful village to take a stroll in. Definitely the place to watch the sunset at the end of the day.

One of the oldest villages on the island. Nice to stroll around in and have a glass of lemonade by the church.

Lots of narrow winding paths that take you up to a few viewing points over and above the surrounding area. Whilst we were there a horde of tourists arrived off of a cruise ship so that was us done for the day at Pyrgos! Plenty of opportunity to buy some local art or a hand painted fridge magnet if that...

You have to visit Pyrgos if you're in Santorini. There are not many tourists there in comparison to Fira and Oia. You can get an amazing view of the sunset if you want up the hill towards the church. Better sunset than in Oia and much less crowded too!

Quiet-yes, less tourist traffic - yes, great panorama - yes. But after visiting many other medieval villages (e.g. Italy, France, Spain, etc) this was very underwhelming.
