Santorini - Day2 - Temples of Pyrgos

We went to many different beaches; like Perivolos and Perissa (both are black beaches) and it was almost an end of southern part visit. We were coming back to the north to see sunset, but we had enough time in our hand. My friend proposed me to take a detour through Meghalocholi and Pyrgos; as these places are famous for some churches.
The first one is very near to a film studio in Meghalocholi, while the second one is just at the entrance of Pyrgos. Pyrgos is a small village famous for getting married. People across the world come here to get married in holy orthodox Greek churches and which is special and cheap also.
What I liked about Pyrgos is the Byzentine Churches and the view of eastern vally, which was flat and green. The picture above captures one of traditional Cyclades Churches and the picture below is an ancient Byzentine Church.

Pyrgos Greece, notable entries include the church of Theotokaki, the Metamorphosis Sotiros, the Agia Theodosia, and the Isodia tis Theotokou. That's glows like a jewel in the night. Pyrgos is a place that certainly worth a visit and dedicate enough time to the most fabulous panoramic view of the island.
