Pyrgos in Tinos

Pyrgos is Tinos second largest village and has around 500 inhabitants. The Tinos town is, as you know, Tinos' largest village and it is about 23 kilometers from Pyrgos. It is a village with a very traditional architecture that has historical connection with a long tradition of sculpture. The village has a suitable touristic charm and it is a great pleasure to aimlessly stroll around in it.

A giant plane tree grows in the beautiful square and it gives shade to the inviting cafes. Alongside the square is a well-preserved fountain. From the steps to the right of the fountain, a alley leads to the village's cemetery. I'm usually not fond of cemeteries, but this is special and well worth seeing. The graves are of marble and richly decorated.
