leave the crowds of Fira for the calm of Pyrgos, the island's highest village. It's a picture-postcard Cycladic village, with its traditional architecture, white houses, winding streets, churches, monastery and the ruins of Kasteli castle. This is one of five kastelia built on the island by the Venetians in medieval times. With its cobbled streets, white houses and blue-domed churches, Pyrgos embodies the traditional charm of the Greek Cyclades. As you explore Pyrgos, you'll discover spectacular views of the Santorini caldera and the Aegean Sea. The village is famous for its impressive medieval hilltop castle, offering breathtaking panoramas of the island. Of course, the view is breathtaking, encompassing all the island's villages, vineyards and the infinite horizon in the distance: one of the best spots to admire sunsets. Pyrgos is also renowned for its rich history and cultural heritage. The remains of the ancient medieval city, Byzantine churches and local museums bear witness to its glorious past. When you visit Pyrgos, you'll be captivated by its serene atmosphere, far removed from the hustle and bustle of tourism. It's the ideal place to relax in the quiet alleyways and enjoy the incredible panoramic views over the sea and surrounding countryside.
