The Icons & Relics Collection of Pyrgos houses a collection of priceless hagiographies, wooden sculptures, metal art works & other items for ecclesiastic use. Most of the exhibits date back to the 17th & 18th century. It also hosts displays on shoemaking, printing, candle making, wine making and typical local food.

The museum can be found in Agia Triada, originally a Catholic church belonging to a small convent. It had been completely abandoned, and in the early seventies only the north wall and part of the Sanctum were standing. Under the 'Association of Pyrgos Residents in Thira' initiative and Mrs. Liza Patiniotis, president of the Association at that time, efforts were made to rebuild the church in 1975 in order to house the collection. Mrs. Patiniotis had the foresight to gather the items of the collection immediately after the 1956 earthquake. The second Ephorate of Byzantine Antiquities with the cooperation of Thira's Holy Metropolis and the community of Pyrgos, managed in 1997 to exhibit once again the collection that had been remained closed for so many years.

The Collection

The oldest icon of the collection that is dated back to the 16th century has the portrait of Agios Georgios and according to testimonies from elderly citizens of Kasteli, comes from the church of the same name.

The form of the rider Saint where the horse appears sideways was probably created in Crete in the 15th century but it has never been established. Three icons of the collection,'Agios Ioannis Theologos', 'Upper Prophets' and 'Theia Leitourgia come from the small temple of Agios Ioannis Theologos, once glebe of Patmos monastery.

The third icon is actually signed by the priest Emmanouil Skordilis. The famous Cretan hagiographer created a workshop on Milos island in the second half of the 17th century, and one can find his hagiographies on many islands. The Collection has also displays works from other prominent hagiographers, such as Heir Viktoros and Monk Paisios.

A beautiful piece of wooden sculpture is the Cross with the trifid edges of the antennas and the 'Lypira' with Panagia and Ioannis. The three monstrances and Epitaphy complete the collection of the wooden sculptures of the 18th and 19th century.

Embroideries, canonicals, holy books and brassware items embellish the collection. Amongst them you can distinguish a pair of golden embroidered sleeves with scenes of Eisodia and Ypapanti.
