THE STORY

Often called as the “painted village”, Pyrgi, at the island of Chios, is a fortress like complex of narrow streets, tightly packed houses and arches with a ruined – dungeon at its centre. The entire village is one of the areas which still stands as it was built and it is one of the most popular medieval villages. 

It is famously known for the detailed decorative motives on the buildings facades. The distinctive graffito technique presents an impressive black and white geometrical décor. The outer layer of cement was painted white and then the geometric shapes (triangles, chevrons, circles, etc) were scraped away. This decorative technique reminds of the Italian graffiti.  The houses of Pyrgi are known as “xysta” and they actually captivate the visitor's eye.
