PYRGOS

27 klm far from the city, Pyrgos is one of the largest and most beautiful villages of the island. The village is known for its workshops and ateliers of marble sculpture, the house and the museum of the famous sculptor Giannoulis Chalepas, the house of the painter Nikiforos Lytras, the marble street signs and its picturesque square in the centre where you can rest underneath the aged platan and taste traditional handmade sweets!

Do not forget to visit the Art School of Marble Sculpture, which since 1956 operates as a generator of art and civilization, as well as to go for a walk few kilometres away to the picturesque harbour Panormos from where the boats departed loaded with marble and baskets from Volax.
