"Hike to Pyrgos" Pyrgos Village Tip by 88Starflite

Pyrgos Village, Santorini Island: 24 reviews and 80 photos

I hike to Messa Gonia one morning and decided to follow the trail all the way up to Pyrgos. It's not that steep but near the top the trail has some areas where its made of pumice and a bit dusty. Most of the trail is very nice, esp. the lower half where it goes thru Messa Gonia. This trail really gives you a different view of the island as it feels like your stepping back in time 50 yrs or more.

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