Music, myths and history
Here your soul can really rejoice
Pyrgos is our destination, the highest village on Santorini and one of the most beautiful parts of the island. An exquisite picture-book location which looks and feels as though it belongs in another era, a Greece of yesteryear.
It’s charming, enchanting and absorbing and here you can live in the moment with the realisation there you are experiencing something very special.
Here your soul can really rejoice.
The pace of life is peaceful, calm and relaxed, a world away from the what we might know as normal life.
The main square with its tall pine trees and delightful coffee shops is the focal and the perfect place to take in the atmosphere.
Capture the moment and the feelings and hold on to them on our guided walking tour exploring the traditional Cyladic architecture that gives Santorini island its unique look.
Wander through the remains of a Venetian fortress and see the historical 18th century monastery of Profitis Ilias, which is closed to the public but remains home to one solitary monk.
Here are the most breathtaking views over the island.
We travel to Megalochori, a remarkably preserved village of Cycladic and neoclassical architecture. Stroll through rustic streets and marvel at homes dug into the volcanic rock.
Then we head to the Symposion Music and Mythology Cultural Centre for a musical presentation which creates an interactive journey using mythological narration and fifteen hand-crafted wind and string instruments.
The tour explores the history and architecture of the former winery and we will enjoy a cup of honey wine.
Back at Fira Town there is free time to shop and explore on your own.
