Pyrgos was on my to do list in Santorini and I am glad we had a little walk through it.
It doesn't take long to see everything there is to see in Pyrgos but that doesn't mean it isn't interesting. We spent about 1 hour in the village, walking around and exploring the small streets. It was really nice to see how people are living on the island and get a less touristy feel of Santorini. If you like cats, there are plenty to stroke there too :)

A wonderful place to spend a few hours. We took the local bus here (one every hour or so). We were dropped off in a fairly uninspiring spot at the bottom of pyrgos. However within a few minutes as we ascended the gentle hill we were transported into another world. Cute, cobbled winding streets. Eerily silent, the only company the occasional cat or chicken. Beautiful, quaint rustic houses and churches in various states of disrepair line the streets. At the top of the hill you are rewarded with wonderful views atop the castle ruins. There's a couple of cafes at the top where you can enjoy a drink and snack whilst enjoying the views. A great couple of hours stepping back in time!

It is an opportunity to visit a typical Greek village and the ruins of a castle without huge crowds of tourists and retail shops. Well worth the effort.

Spread over a wide site, many rooms give an insight into early life on the island. There are facilities and you are allowed to wander freely over the extensive sight, which also gives great views over other parts of the island. Very worthwhile visit.

There was a second-high hill in Santorini, so we could see Santorini island broadly. Pyrgos castle was located on the top, and to go there, we went winding alley about 20 minutes. The view of top was very beautiful. Good place.
