Pyrgadikia is a small fishing village built on a hill overlooking the Mount Athos and Sithonia in Halkidiki.
The village is built on an outcrop of rock and lies on the coast between Sithonia and Athos peninsula. It is surrounded by olive trees and low vegetation. It is built amphitheatrically and therefore, from every part of the village, you can see the majesty of the Mount Athos (Holy Mountain) and the peninsula of Sithonia.
The church “Panagia Kastrella” has great importance as the icon of the Virgin Mary is there on display. As an old story says, Turkish people threw the icon into the sea, but the locals found and kept it inside a castle named “Kastrella”.
