The village is located 17 kilometers (10.5 miles) west of Pythagorion, on the route Pythagorion-Marathokampos on the slopes of a hill. The drive from Pythagorion takes about 25 minutes. A characteristic of Pyrgos are the red ceramic tiles on the houses. The environment is very green. There are olive groves everywhere. In the village there are several taverns.
