Photography Exhibition

Τhe intriguing exhibition “Theran Warriors” is running until 10 June in the Estia of Pyrgos Cultural Association, in the central square of Pyrgos.
The exhibition presents soldiers from Santorini who fought during WWI and the Balkan Wars as they were identified in the detailed record book of 'Cycladic Warriors' created from 1936 to 1938. The book was recently discovered on the island of Syros by the archaeologist Lefteris Zorzos and presents fascinating information about their family history, work, education, their time spent in the army along with a portrait of each individual. A true link with the island’s past!

The exhibition is open daily 10.00 to 13.00 and 17.00 to 20.00.
