Pyrggos is an classical hilltop village complete with narrow winding streets, great views and several churches. The viewpoint from the top is spectacular. Based on our guides recommendation we visited in the afternoon and it was reasonably peaceful. Apparently the mornings can be very busy...More

A great idea without any doubt. Visiting santorini is an amazing experience itself, however visiting this place can mean so much more. We had an amazing guide inside the village

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.

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

It is the low season now and the village was so quiet. I walked around the whole village and only encountered 3 boys playing and 1 elderly woman, but many cats on the paths. The only noise came from an unfastened gate that was constantly...More
