Pyrgi

Pyrgi (Πυργί) is a Medieval village in southern Chios famous for the black and white geometrical designs on the buildings (xysta). Wandering through the narrow streets will leave you mesmerized by the designs.

The xysta originate from the Genoese who once ruled the island. It’s a very attractive village where even the churches and gas station are decorated.

I love sitting in the square and having frappe and some pastries for breakfast. As of my last visit, there’s also free wifi in the square.
