There are literally dozens of churches in Pyrgos of all shapes and sizes from small chapels to huges almost cathedral size affairs. I think our guidebooks put the number at 45 - you'd be hard pressed to find them all as some are almost invisble, blending into the surrounding houses and streets so that sometimes you just stumble upon one unexpectedly. 45 may seem like a lot of churches for such a small village, but then Santorini has I think about 365 altogether on what is really quite a small island.

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