Pyrgos provides one of the finest examples of Cycladic architecture in Greece, exemplified by the town's labyrinthine streets and whitewashed stone buildings. The former capital of Santorini, this small town today houses only 500 inhabitants (and most are employed in the tourist sector). Although the town caters to a growing number of foreign visitors, Pyrgos seems unfazed by the passage of time, preserving the look and feel of medieval Santorini. Use the town as a base for trips into the surrounding countryside, where you can find tiny traditional settlements and the remains of the island's Minoan past. Use our Greece family vacation planner to plan your trip to Pyrgos and other destinations in Greece.

Where to stay in Pyrgos

As with most places in Santorini, travelers to Pyrgos have mostly expensive accommoation options. While you may find some mid-range options outside of the center, hotels in the town center are priced fairly similarly. Budget travelers looking for the most affordable hotels should stay near the bus and railway station, though this neighborhood is less desirable than the center. If you are planning a more luxurious vacation, opt for a historical villa or luxury home on the nearby mountainside or along the town's beaches.
