Pyrgos is the Most Beautiful and Authentic Santorini Village
Pyrgos is a picture-perfect village. If you’re looking for an idyllic place to stay on Santorini, then Pyrgos will not disappoint. The highest village on the island, Pyrgos provides superb panoramas and stunning sunsets. Its winding medieval streets and blue-domed churches lead up to the oldest castle on the island, the Kastelli.
