In commanding fashion, the Tower of Marcellos looms to the south of the village. This is the country home of physician and author Theodoros Marcellos. The Tower of Marcellos is an original residence with a front-facing square tower. The construction of the tower is connected to one of the proposed origins of the village’s name. According to this theory, “the name of the community derives from the presence of towers (Pyrgos in Greek means Tower) in prominent locations around the homes.” According to the villagers, Marcellos shared this belief, and he constructed the tower for this reason.
