A city with grand designs
The prestige of the past uniquely combines with the unparalleled beauty surrounding the city.
The prosperous commercial activity of the past, mainly centred around the cultivation of raisins, contributed to the cultural development of the city while the sites of religious interest are also worthy of your special attention.
International Festivals and cultural routes
The Archaeological Museum of Pyrgos, conceived by Ziller, with four differently designed sides, is regarded as the most important of the listed buildings of the city. To further impress the visitor, its unique exhibits are shown off at their best by state-of –the-art technology. A walk around the central square of Pyrgos takes you to the municipal theatre “Apollon”. Also a listed building, today it hosts the International Film Festival “Olympia” for children and young people. During your stay in Pyrgos, find out if there is a performance on – so you can live a special experience! TheTown Hall, whose benefactor was Latsis, is also a splendid sight and is home to both the administration offices and the Municipal Market. And finally for good measure, the Railway Station also makes a worthy addition to the architectural wealth of the city.
