It is located 25 km from the center of Chios and is one of the most beautiful villages of Chios. Features that make the village unique (is also called the "painted" village) are the black geometric decoration of the exterior walls of houses “scratch” as they are called. This is a technique by hand, carving geometric patterns in black and white. It is also a medieval village with narrow streets, numerous churches and the Byzantine Church of the Agioi Apostoloi of the 13th century. The houses are tightly built to each other to form a compact structure. The streets are cobbled and narrow. Pirgi has become a preservable monument. It’s residents mainly live on mastic. Accommodations, cafes and excellent taverns are available in the village.
