The town of Pilgos, the highest point of the island, has a panoramic view of the island. There is no strong commercialization, more primitive state. Quiet and peaceful, no tourists like knitting, and do not have to struggle to find a small blue top, you can see everywhere, consumption is relatively appropriate. Where there is no Chinese, there is always more flavor.
Pilgos is the old capital of Santorini Island. Fewer tourists can stop at Pilgos by bus in Perissa. The town is relatively high on Santorini Island. Climbing up the town can overlook the whole island. The bosses of boarding houses recommend this tour. Of course, there are all kinds of blue-roofed churches, as well as lazy cats and jobs in the corner. The donkey.
Driving 10 minutes to Pilgos, the clean and tidy street scenery of the town along with the depth of walking, the taste of blue and white town gradually came out... Every family's courtyard decorated with exquisite snow-white staircase under the blue sky, a fresh breath came. Blue and white perfect match, eternal classics in Santorini, church almost everywhere. Exquisitely decorated balconies. The houses of local residents are mostly built of volcanic rocks from local sources. The walls and streets are white, wandering around the town, very relaxed feeling. Fine hand-painted porcelain from local shops selling local specialties. Very sentimental wall decorations are black and red. They are small ornaments made of volcanic stones. They can be bought as souvenirs. As for turquoise, they can only pass by the top of Pilgos town with a laugh. The ruins after the volcanic earthquake still retain their original appearance. Historically, there have been many volcanic eruptions, the most serious in 1500 BC, the center of the island collapsed in a large area, the original Round Island presents today's crescent.
The town of Pilgos is built at the highest point in Santorini, where you can overlook the magnificent panorama of Santorini. This town has a relatively low degree of commercialization, but it is more primitive, less tourists and more peaceful. It remained the capital of Santorini until the early nineteenth century, leaving behind many exquisite Byzantine buildings and many magnificent rubber sheaths. In addition, Pilgos is also an important shopping place in Santorini, where handicraft, local products market is very worth visiting.
The town of Prygos, once the administrative capital of Santorini, was replaced by Ferra. Located on the hills, it is the highest point of Santorini Island and offers a panoramic view of the island. The whole town is small, but it has 33 churches. It is not very famous, has few residents and few tourists. It is relatively quiet. On the way from Fira, we can pass Santo Wines Winery, but when we did not go to Pyrgos, we didn't feel as amazing as we thought. In fact, the whole island of Santorini is covered with small white houses, so it's not very attractive. But there are more local residents and fewer tourists, which is more peaceful and peaceful than Ferra. You can also see that many abandoned buildings are a bit gloomy.
I prefer Pilgos to tourists'noisy Oia or Fira. It's not a big town. If you don't make any stops, you can go around in about 20 minutes. But if you like taking pictures, you won't have enough time. There are no familiar scenic spots in this town, but they are changing scenes step by step. I really admire the sight of the residents in this town. They paint their walls, doors and windows casually and take a long time. Heart drop put a jar and pot, plant trees and potted flowers. The result is a landscape. When you get to Pilgos, don't say anything. Hold up your camera and cell phone, and start "click" directly. Doors, windows, roads, walls, whatever you shoot, how you shoot, come back and see, you can enter the picture.
Pilgos Town is an untapped village, which retains its primitive features. It is the highest point of Santorini, overlooking the magnificent panorama of Santorini. The view of the town can not be described by beauty. Standing on the cliff, you can see the fascinating Aegean Sea and the chapel.
