Although it was partially damaged by the
earthquake in 1956, Pyrgos remains one of the largest villages
on Santorini along with being one of the oldest. Built on the
slopes of the mountain Profitis Elias, 7.5.kms southeast of Fira,
Pyrgos has managed to stay relatively tourist free by banning
the construction of hotels. It also boasts a Medieval Castle,
a church, and a panoramic view over the whole island.
