Pyrgos lies in the middle of the island a few km south of Fira. It was roughly 30 minutes walk from our hotel to the village, which stands on the top of a hill and is visible from all around (see photo). This position also means that the views from the village are fantastic, taking in both coasts and the sprawl of sugar cubes that is Fira, Firostefani and Imerovigli. It's an impressive sight, and possibly the best place to view the island from.

Address: Pyrgos Kallistis, Santorini
Directions: The highest village on Santorini, between Fira and Megalochori (toward Akrotiri).
