Been there 2 times. We repeated, lured by the magnetic beauty of the curved streets and the panorama from the top. From here you have to start your hiking path to Profitis Ilias Monastery.

You are done with mass tourism. You are looking for authenticity, charm and peace. Well do not spread too quickly the news but there is still an existing place like this in Santorini. Pyrgos is simply fantastic. Narrow walking streets, warm people, beautiful view on...More

We visited here at part of a TUI island trip. Must see the cultural village museum and take a walk up to the Venetian chick at the top of the cobbled narrow streets. The views from there are spectacular.

There weren't very many tourists, so it was great to explore the traditional Greek village (typical white houses and lots of steps) at our leisure. The town isn't too big - you can walk around in 1-2 hours with a stop at a cafe since...More

When in Santorini around Easter, you have to visit Pyrgos on Good Friday. The whole town is lit up with candles just after sunset, starting at the top with three crosses. It's magical. Do take into account that the procession takes a few hours, so...More
