Castelli of Pyrgos
This is the most recent of all Castelli in Santorini, it was built around 1580. In the beginning, at its top there was a tower that was later demolished and the Monastery of St Georgios was built in its place. The walls of the houses composed the fortified surrounding wall of the castelli, while there was only one entrance.The settlement was built upon a sequence of underground roads aimed at being used as a shelter in case the settlement would ever fall in the enemies’ hands. Once Skaros was abandoned, the Castelli of Pyrgos became the capital of the island.
