Activities in Pyrgos Santorini

Strolls to the Pyrgos Kastelli

The location of Skyfall Suites allows you to visit all the attractions of the nearby village as you are simply walking. Follow the narrow streets that will take you on a journey back in time at the Kastelli (Castle) of Pyrgos. From the square you will ascend to the top, stopping at particularly important churches, such as Theotokaki, one of the oldest churches on the island, to get to the highest point and the church of the Virgin Mary with the beautiful steeple.

The monastery of Prophet Elias

Just a few meters from Skyfall suites, the path leading to the monastery of Prophet Elias begins. A unique route with breath-taking views to the entire island of Santorini. In the monastery, you will find a small exhibition and you will experience the hospitality of the monks.

Wineries

The Santorini Union of Cooperatives, SantoWines, and the Chantzidakis Winery will be the next stops on your walks around Skyfall Suites. Especially in Santowines, you can enjoy wine tastings and buy local products from the shop. The caldera views are unique and this is one of the best places to enjoy the famous sunset of Santorini.

Tastes & Products

The products of Santorini have a unique taste worth discovering. We start with the famous cherry tomato.
Its seeds came from Egypt and soon flourished in the soil of the island giving a small, hard-skinned but fully flavored kind of tomato that you will taste in traditional salads.

Try the capers, the white eggplants, and also the fava (yellow split peas) which grows on the island for 3500 years and belongs to a unique variety.

Undoubtedly, the gastronomic scene of Santorini is defined by the unique wine varieties. Assyrtiko, Athiri, and Aidani, which give wines with strong character and unique taste, where a glass of the famous Vinsanto will make you feel wonderful, as you are sipping the most representative taste of Santorini.

Sightseeing Villages

The island has a number of villages full of interesting corners, unique sites, and exceptional beauty. We start with the capital of the island, the town of Fira. Built on the edge of the caldera, Fira is a vibrant spot on the island of Santorini.

Walk at the caldera rim, shop, stop for coffee and lunch, visit the museums- the Archaeological and the Museum of Prehistoric Thera- and make your visit at Fira a memorable one. Now to Oia, one of the most beautiful villages of Santorini.

Oia is on the northern part of the island and features traditional architecture; blue-domed churches, restaurants, and cafes make the visit to Oia an unforgettable one.

Do not miss the villages of Firostefani and Imerovigli, both built on the caldera and close to Fira. The villages of the hinterland have a special allure. For instance, Megalochori is a serene little village with beautiful squares and churches. In Emporio, you will find a well- preserved castle city, whereas, in Messaria, you can see the mansions of the 18th century.
