Pyrgos Village

Pyrgos Tinos: Pyrgos village is built in the heart of a verdant site, as one of the largest, most beautiful villages of Tinos and the entire Cyclades. The village charms with the numerous marble creations made by the local craftsmen. Today visitors have a chance to admire the marble streets, arches, churches and many monuments. Wood carving work shops and a School of Fine Arts also function in the village of Pyrgos.

Marble exists everywhere in the village in different forms, above the colorful doors of the houses, on the fountains, in the cemetery with its wonderful sculptures and in the completely marble-made buildings which make Pyrgos an outdoor architectural museum.

The whitewashed narrow alleys, houses and churches as well as the colourful flowers decorating the house facades and balconies uniquely match with the aristocratic marble features, giving the village a superb decor. It is worth mentioning that Pyrgos is the birthplace of many famous Greek sculptors including Ioannis Halepas whose house is open to the public.
