Pyrgi village Chios: Pyrgi is one of the most beautiful villages of Chios located 24 km west of the island's main town, close to Mastihochoria, The area that produces the famous mastic. Today, more than 1,200 inhabitants live in Pyrgi most of whom are engaged in the production of mastic and agriculture. The village was named after the central medieval tower that still stands in the village and has maintained its traditional architecture.

Pyrgi is also called the "painted" village due to the fine decoration of the houses: grey and white geometrical shapes decorate the facades of the houses, according to the Italian architecture, when Chios was under the occupation of the Franks.

Like in the other medieval villages of the island, the stone houses of Pyrgi are built close one to each other, forming a defensive wall. Narrow stone-paved streets, superb churches, unique architecture and balconies full of flowers and sun-dried tomatoes are composing the magical scenery of the village. Accommodations, cafes and excellent taverns are available in the village.
