Pyrgos Kallistis is a medieval fortress settlement that maintains its original structure composed of cobbled streets that twist and turn down the hill where the village has developed, dominated by a Venetian Castle (Kasteli). Considered a monument in 1995, the village is one of the least spoiled by tourism, and featuring ancient buildings throughout its entire area, it is pervaded by an historical flair. With its 600 residents, Pyrgos keeps hold of the allure of an old Greek village that is starting to open up to the increasing flow of tourism. Tavernas, restaurants and traditional Greek cafes find their home along the village streets, blessed by a scent of grapes released by the vineyards that surround Pyrgos.
